Okay, so tied for numero seis y dies for me is Midlake's The Trials of VanOcupanther and Joanna Newsom's Milk Eyed Mender.


I've been in love with both of these albums since my ears first had the pleasure of listening to them. Although, I did first hear newsom's voice as annoying and somewhat "put on" so she could be classified with other "freak folk" artists..I immediately was blown away by her pop sensibilities and lavish lryical stylings.

And Midlake is hands-down one of the best bands of all time.

Look at how excited hamtaro is:

We just got the new one. I feel the same way about her voice but because everything else is so amazing, its growing on me.

Isn't that Midlake cover also a scene from The Village?
