the faint - danse macabre (2001)
the faint have been around for a while now, and with the recent wave of electro and the like, i feel the need to mention a record that was (arguably) ahead of its time (as far as modern music goes, anyway). danse macabre came out over 6 years ago, and still holds a pretty solid place in many people's record collection. most would also say it's their best work, including myself. since then, the faint continued perfecting a very synth-heavy and distinct brand of indie, put on brilliant live shows, and make you move your bones. my only complaint with this one is that it's not long enough.
