I think denying it's a brilliant album is even more hip than writing on your blog how brilliant it is every other day.

The only way I can see MPP being a let down is if you expected it to raise the dead or something. That album was great.

i like to think that Phantogram's imminent blow-up will (all?) be due to this board's initial Charlie Everywhere thread.

01-12-2010, 10:49 AM
