top 5 Arcade Fire albums:

1. Funeral
2. Reflektor
3. The Suburbs
4. Her score (does this count?)
5. Neon Bible

Reflektor and The Suburbs are really a toss-up. Reflektor better on a song by song basis but The Suburbs is very thematic which I love to see in an album. Not sure where Us Kids Know would fit in.

top 5 songs:

1. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
2. It's Never Over (Oh Orpheus)
3. Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
4. Wake Up
5. Neighborhood #2 (Laika)

honourable mentions: We Exist, Here Comes The Night Time, Sprawl I & II, Rebellion (Lies)

Top 5 Nick Cave lyrics:

5) The Carny left behind a horse so skin and bone that he'd named Sorrow

4 ) and with an ashtray as big as a fucking really big brick I split his head in half

3) You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan

2) "Neighbours!" I cried, "Friends!" I screamed / I banged my fist upon the bar / "I bear no grudge against you!" / And my dick felt long and hard

1) I'm a bad motherfucker, don't you know / and I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy's asshole

@3hunna whoa you're incredibly brave for even attempting but COME ON!!!!! yeezus, graduation, and college dropout last? i know yeezus is contentious so i don't really care when people put that at the bottom of their lists, but graduation is a fucking solid (FUCKING SOLID!!!!) album and college dropout is fucking AMAZING. i'm curious, when was the last time you listened to it? cause even one of my best friends who is a huge kanye head didn't have a full appreciation of college dropout until he re-listened to it recently. all falls down, jesus walks, through the wire... like damn. that is a fucking amazing album. 808 is good, but college dropout is historic.

@hooplah
Thanks for the reply,
Kanye is possibly my favorite artists, and I enjoy all of his music greatly, so any list I make about him will largely be based on how I feel in that moment. I think MBDTF is a perfect album. Late Registration has the most of my favorite songs . 808s is the album that I have listened to the least so it is the most fresh to me. College dropout is an amazing album, but it has less of my favorite songs than Late Registration, and the skits make it more difficult for me to enjoy the album as a whole. Graduation feels the least personal of his albums and I never really loved Yeezus. I hope this explains my reasoning a bit.

top five most aesthetically pleasing states in the US of A

1. Nevada. I mean look at that thing it's fucking beautiful
Spoiler:

2. Virginia. the cloud state
Spoiler:

3. New York State. NY has a weird balance to it and is the state equivalent of those bird toys that stand on their beak because of the centre of gravity thing.
Spoiler:

4. Texas. its big but also its interesting. it's also vaguely USA shaped, which is neat.
Spoiler:

5. Wyoming. because I like Wyoming more than Colorado. it has a sweet flag and those big sheep things. tie broken.
Spoiler:

Bottom five?
Maryland, Delaware, Oklahoma (oh god), Louisiana, and New Jersey

Top Five Songs on Reflektor
1. Afterlife
2. Reflektor
3. Oh Eurydice/Hey Orpheus
4.We Exist
5. Here Comes the Night Time

Top Five Arcade Fire Music Videos
1. We Used To Wait (http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com/)
I've heard people call it cheesy, but I thought it was thoroughly entertaining throughout. The whole idea is pretty cool.
2. Sprawl II (http://www.sprawl2.com/)
Amazing song and the dancing thing is fun.
3. Reflektor (http://www.justareflektor.com/)
The effects aren't too crazy but are still pretty cool.
4. Black Mirror (http://arcadefire.com/blackmirror/)
The effects are arguably more interesting than Reflektors, but I got bored a couple times throughout the video.
5. Neon Bible (http://beonlineb.com/)
I got pretty bored.

Top 5 Worst Brands

Private White VC: When I think of the PWVC man he looks exactly like someone who buys a lot of clothes from Cotton Traders.

Saint Laurent Paris: Rock and roll is already sterile so in a way it's good that you can buy sterile rock and roll clothes.

Nazir Mazhar: Heard he got scientists to help develop a logo that would be recognisable through any number of reblogs but then scrapped it and just used some word art blown up to 192pts and printed all over every single garment. It's not sportswear though and it's definitely not just obnoxious marketing.

Zara: I love cheap shit but I want to puke whenever I enter this store.

Nike: Stupid fussy logo, every single release is just an old release with a different sole or in a limited edition tier one quick strike colourway. Everytime you see anyone wearing Nike they're normally with five other people wearing identical Nikes

To balance the negativity, top 5 best brands:

Peir wu: Could actually wear all these clothes everyday.
Maharishi: Like techwear but not overpriced.
STORY: Bobkat taught me how to live.
Uniqlo: Decent quality, no logos, no weird brand pretensions other than "clothes that will help you out in life"
Adidas: Greatest brand on the planet.
