Wow. This is a tough one. Are we talking "Best" or "Favorite"--similar, but very different. Just like Player of the Year and Most valuable Player.

chet - very nice picks. It amazes me, even though it's a cliche thing to say (but true), that Weezer made two near flawless albums and not much of anything after. Pinkerton probably has my favorite Weezer song (The Good Life) but I prefer the Blue Album over it. A Series of Sneaks is also fantastic ... it and Girls Can Tell rotate on my favorite Spoon albums. The new one was great too ... they're such a consistent band.

Always nice to see a Meat Puppets album on such a list. I know Curt quite well. Another friend of mine went to see them is Long Beach two nights ago. Also good to have Chris back in fold and healthy. The Kirkwood brothers are quite the characters. Great players too.
