I really wish I could hear what everyone else does in Vampire Weekend, but I can't connect with them personally. No "personal favorites" on this album, but I do like the top three. (Unfortunately, I find the bottom three particularly difficult to listen to.)

Overall album rating: 3.67

Sorry Honorio, I know I said I'd start again on this after the choruses poll but I've been listening through the 2017 all-time album list and I forgot that Modern Vampires was part of Rank the Tracks, ended up listening to it and now I'm here! My ranking while it's still fresh in my memory:

09| Worship You
02| Unbelievers
01| Obvious Bicycle
04| Diane Young
11| Hudson
05| Don't Lie
03| Step
07| Everlasting Arms
06| Hannah Hunt
08| Finger Back
12| Young Lion
10| Ya Hey
