My God....

Within the span of one week, my two most anticipated albums of the year will be coming out. And by "most anticipated," i mean "when these albums leak, I will jump up and down, scream and celebrate like the Leafs just won the Cup." On May 15th, Wilco's Sky Blue Sky comes out, followed by The National's Boxer on the 22nd. Of course, these will leak before the release dates, so I can really expect them some time in April, most likely, and could get them one day apart or three weeks apart. Either way, it'll be my favourite band of all time vs. the band who created, hands down, the best album of 2005 [and probably the last three or four years]. Not only will they come under intense scrutiny from me, they're also up against the other one. Thinking about it, it would be pretty awesome if Wilco and The National had an actual fight. Wilco have an extra member, but they're older.

I am already a little sad at the Wilco album for not including "Is That The Thanks I Get?" I'm hoping it'll show up as a b-side or on the inevitable bonus EP, but I don't want to wait. That song is soulful bliss. But I'm sure I won't be disappointed when I get to hear the full album. I can't be disappointed...
