A fascinating read, as ever.

I think Neon Bible is destined to top my list, and it's good to see someone else appreciating the merits of Tones Of Town. White Chalk hasn't had much opportunity to bed in with me yet, but I don't instinctively like it in the same way I liked Stories From The City... and Uh Huh Her.

Must hear Proof Of Youth, Let's Stay Friends, The Stage Names and Curses! - the latter because of FOTL's Cardiff connections, of course (still haven't seen them live). I wasn't hugely impressed by Battles at Green Man, though Atlas is a monster of a single (and no surprise to see it top your list!).
