The "3 E.P.'s" is a very good album...but my favorite would be "Heroes To Zeros." It is I think their "Abbey Road."  ;)

yeah their is a very similar quality to them.  I

 bought the 3 ep's after seeing High Fidelity, cos the refrain on Dry the Rain is so catchy.  But their much more than that really

Chalk it up to different tastes, but I have that song on the 'Hi Fidelity' soundtrack and its as boring as whale s*it. Its muzak. My opinion, but its only based on that one song.

The High Fidelity soundtrack also introduced me to Stereolab, Velvet Underground, Belle and Sebastian, Smog, and Love..

^Yup.  Except for Stevie Wonder in the 80's.

"Top 5 musical crimes commited by Stevie Wonder in the 80's.  Subquestion, is it fair to hold later mistakes against a legend.  Is it better to burn out or fade away?
