don't get daydream nation, get sister instead. ddn is such a boring and overrated album.

if you like the smiths, chances are you'll like the stone roses as well. also, you should get 'bee thousand' by guided by voices, 'darklands' by the jesus & mary chain and 'in the aeroplane over the sea' by neutral milk hotel.

edit: i also second the whole alligator thing.
