Amazing week. The first three match-ups are heaven!

6. Pixies - Trompe le Monde vs. 3. The Black Keys - Brothers

1. Soulwax - As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 vs. 2. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact
Pretty much a tie. Painful choice.

5. The Knife - Deep Cuts vs. 4. Fred Pallem - Le sacre du tympan (Le retour)
Also pretty much a painful tie.

8. Songs: Ohia - Didn't it Rain vs. 7. New Radicals - Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too

Back from vacation with enough time to listen to everything. Winners in red:

1. Pixies - Trompe le Monde vs. The Black Keys - Brothers

Top-tier Black Keys beats mid-tier Pixies.

2. Soulwax - As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt. 2 vs. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact

Radio Soulwax is a hell of a lot of fun, but Eye Contact is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the decade. Those warbling vocals! Those pounding drums in the final track! The 11-minute crescendo of "Glass Jar"! It makes me sad I didn't end up liking Kazuashita very much.

3. The Knife - Deep Cuts vs. Fred Pallem - Le sacre du tympan (Le retour)

Fred Pallem works better for me on a track-by-track basis; a full album's worth of stuff is a bit much.

4. Songs: Ohia - Didn't it Rain vs. New Radicals - Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too

This is a better album that the ones produced by most 90s one-hit wonders.
