    "best sophisticated pop ever" No, that would be Saint Etienne but you are entitled to your own opinion. :) Ivy is a good band. "Long distance" is a excellent album. Perhaps their best? (I haven't heard all their albums yet.)

    It took a while, but All Hours has finally grown to be one of my favourite albums in the past couple of years. Sure, it's not very complex nor inventive, but I think its charm lies in its rawness and immediateness (if that's even a word). Hope they'll be more active now; waiting close to six years for a new album is lame.

    Surprised that "I've got you memorized" isn't in their top tracks at all.
