Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

The critical consensus I’m hearing seems to point to this as 2005’s Album of the Year.


I mean…tracks like “Heavy Metal” (download) and “Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood” (download) have a certain sloppy karaoke-night-at-David-Byrne’s-apartment charm to them, but…this is the best record that came out this year?

I’m getting pretty old, I guess.
