    This is one of the greatest indie rock albums of the 00s for sure. It's as enjoyable as the day it was released.

    Absolutely brilliant, and so simply *pleasureable* to listen to. And then you realise that behind it all is some serious and intelligent craft.

    I think I almost prefer the second half over the first. The whole thing is really great, though.

    One of the best first halves of an album of all time.

    "Stacked Crooked = Brilliant. Don't know why it's the second least listened to on the album." it's my favorite thing they've ever done

    Twenty years from now or so, this album should be thought of as a classic... If not, there is something very very wrong with the world ;)

    This made my Top 25 albums of the decade. I'd love for your feedback on my list, a lot of heart and effort:

    Why is the track list messed up? The songs are in the proper order but the numbers are repeated at times! Also, There is a bonus track for this album if you get the Japanese or iTunes versions of it. (The Japan release is hard to get but I'm going to get it some day)

    I don't know about the rest of you but at first I didn't like The New Pornographers, Now they're the band I listen to the most all because of this album and my knowledge that not all music (Very little, actually) Appeals at first. It may have taken over a month before I started listening to Challengers and Electric Version but Twin Cinema kept me listening to them as they grew on me. Then when I started listening to Challengers I kept going and now I have some of the members' other albums.

    Stacked Crooked = Brilliant. Don't know why it's the second least listened to on the album.

    In my opinion this is the album that's hardest to get into. With their first album the feel of awesomeness was immidiately there, but with this one it wasn't en still isn't. 'Electric version' is the one I listened the most according to but I still adore 'Mass Romantic'. The last one ('Challengers') got me back into this band, after this one. Anyone had the same experience? Don't know why...

    The trifecta of The Bleeding Heart Show,Jackie Dressed In Cobras and The Jessica Numbers is worth the price of admission alone.Wonderful album.
