Thoughts on the new Japandroids album "Celebration Rock"?



Just picked it up the other day and it's easily in my top 5 albums of the year. I like it more than Post-Nothing, very upbeat and tight. My favorite track is The Night of Wine and Roses

In my top 5 as well. The House That Heaven Built is my favorite track. Maybe my song of the year even at this point.

It reminds me a lot of The Men's most recent album, but younger and brighter.

I also got the new Dirty Projectors, but haven't had the time to listen yet. I'm hoping it comes close to Bitte Orca.

I just bought the Men and Dirty Projectors both last night.

Outside of Stillness is the Move, I wasn't really a huge Bitte Orca fan, so I am kinda skeptical of the new one, but it was like $3 bucks so I figured just as well give it a shot.

I didn't really like Post-Nothing, but yeah... the new Japanadroids album is pretty sick. I like it a lot.

Yep. One of my favorites for the year for sure. Probably my #1 right now.

It's my #2 album right now, behind The Walkmen. Loved Post-Nothing and this is even better, imo, due to the improvement in production.

What is your top 5?

I haven't listened to this album yet -- and lots of others -- but I'll toss one out there.

1. Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeros -- Here
2. Santigold -- Master of my make believe
3. The Shins -- Port of Morrow
4. Jack White -- Blunderbuss
5. John Mayer -- born and raised (mostly on the strength of the Walt Grace song)

Honorable mention: new B.o.B


New thread? New thread!

I thought I got the over distorted, monotonous, 2 step "punk rock" out of my system when I was about 14. Somehow, Japandroids put a tasteful guitar tone into the punk mold and actually made a great album. Super impressed.
