Hold Steady come 6th. The Nick Cave album suffers from the fact that I've been a fan for nearly 25 years, and I think he's done six or seven better albums.

Fair enough.

Did you check out the Deerhunter record? Someone (Pitchfork?) called it the best record 4AD have put out in 10 years. It sounds a bit Loveless-esque. I reckon you'd like it.

I'd not heard that. Just listening to some samples now, and it's interesting stuff.
