To me, Perfect from Now On and Keep it Like a Secret are top-tier albums, and everything else falls just below them. In Drew's five star ichunes rating system, those are both 4 1/2 star albums (I'm very selective about my five-star albums), and the others are between 3-4 stars.

When you get right down to it, I love all Built to Spill albums equally. I have favorites, but on any given day I'd rather (and do) listen to anything Built to Spill has released than just about anything else.
When you get right down to it, Built to Spill is one of my drop-your-ham-sandwich-and-pray favorite bands. Talkin' top ten.

I tweeted Adam Snacks and called him Adam Snacks and he said he liked the nickname. I was even yelling in all caps. I asked him to get some weird bands. I understand this does not make any difference in the world but I was wondering if he would get mad that I called him Adam Snacks.
