    Yeah, Rob has been doing solo stuff. Good for him, but it's too much like Wake (that is: medium-soft rock that belongs on Kink) for my tastes.

    I hear the songs in my head as if they were live, but somehow I hear the lead singer with my voice blended in.

    Well, technically, I did provide a top 10 list.

    I listen to music almost constantly. I have systems throughout my house. I still have every album I've ever bought, going all the way back to the 1970s and have started buying more vinyl again. Portland has more record stores than any other city in North America (that's not more record stores per capita, that more record stores period). So, that makes it easy too indulge my habit.

    I have also ripped my entire CD collection, (bought my first CD payer back in 1984), to a 10-year old Mac Mini I picked up on craigslist for $60. I upgraded the processor and memory with parts from a Dell laptop that was on the recycle cart at work, installed a 1TB internal drive and updated the operating system. I use it as a dedicated music server for streaming music to all the systems throughout my house.

    I also got into SACDs a couple years ago, and have been slowly adding to my collection.

    And, I listen to KNRK during my morning workout every morning.

    So, it's hard for me to pick just 10 favorites when I have so many.

    Now I'm listening to Float and remembering how good it is, so thanks for that, but None Shall Pass over Labor Days? For me, Aesop + Blockhead is better than Aesop alone. I'll give it another listen next.

    Looking back, I agree. I prefer Float and Labor Days to None Shall Pass. But like I said in the post, these are the albums that got the most plays. I listened to None Shall Pass for about 6 months straight when it came out. I can't listen to that album without immediately being reminded of walking around the PSU campus with the sun shining.

    All that said, I think Impossible Kid might be Aesop's best album yet.

    If I was to choose an Aesop record, I'd go with Bazooka Tooth. Mainly for the cough syrupy production by El-P and RJD2. In that vein, El-P fits my tastes much more than Aesop. "Cancer For Cure " is a fantastic album.

    I love El-P now, but back then I didn't like his production and much preferred Blockhead. Bazooka Tooth is still my least-fav Aesop album

    EDIT: I think what I don't like about it is that Aesop seems to be copping off of El-P's bad boy persona on that album, and it doesn't fit him at all.

    I can totally see all of that. This is why we all have different tastes though. I think it is neat how different people interpret things in different ways. I suppose I like Bazooka Tooth because it shows more influence by EL-P.

    Definitely. It's sad that they had a falling out. I'd love to hear what they could do together nowadays

    With the summer like weather and a lot of relaxation time, I have been listening to a lot of Santo and Johnny over the last couple of days. Fits perfectly.
