Beirut reminds me a little of Black Carrot in their avant gardeness. I think of the two I'd prefer to listen to Carrot.
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

What would that be 64?
a doped up Morrisey and the Tijunana iron? (they certainly were not good enough for brass)

I think when I play them, they're all my favourite.

Incidentally, a great live album too.

All three of us have the same four, only in different orders

If we scored those albums 4, 3, 2, 1 on our favourites there isn't much in it & on another day those positions could be completely different

9 Boys Ans Girls
8 Separation Sunday
7 Almost Killed Me
6 Stay positive

Other than the odd track I have on my iPod I've never really listened to/given these a chance.

Given the seeming ringing endorsements all round I'll have to make the effort to listen to some of the albums suggested fully.
