#12 of 2008: Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash

Thirty-Two Words: Stephen Malkmus and his merry band of Jicks have recorded the most collaborative and live work of his two-decade career. Some of the songs meander while others are just silly, like Pavement.

The Moment of Truth: It wasn't when I first heard the record. It wasn't when I tried and tried to like because so many other bloggers loved it. It wasn't even after I saw him play the Note this fall. I just randomly played the album one day while driving for work and it clicked.

Killer to Filler Ratio: 4:1
