I can't say just one, but I know it's either Necropolis or The Proper Nouns. They're both incredible records and on heavy rotation @ el hogar del Bobby Miller.

First thing that springs to mind is The Kyle Sowashes.

This record is up there too. Truly Kyle's best work. Catchy. Smart. Irresistible.

While I love Western Reserve and all things Necropolis, I have to say that Dead and/or Famous is probably my absolute favorite. I understand that Mors has gone through some style changes and I recommend that anyone who has preconceived notions about them being some kind of blues outfit should forget them.

Dead and/or Famous is full of edgy songs that will rock you socks off. If you aren't tapping your foot, slapping the steering wheel or trying to retsrain yourself in public while listening to your I-pod, check your pulse because you're dead. 45 Revolutions, Lovesick, D.Y.I. and Lapse/Relapse are the garage rock lover's dream.

There are also some other really amazing songs on here I just love. Uneasy is quirky, smooth and sultry and Shoes really is just beautiful.

The understated song that did not jump out at me the first couple of times through is Life in a Box. Really catchy song with a great hook and I could imagine it getting some serious attention. It does have a more maintream radio-friendly appeal.

What I like best about Dead and/or Famous is that each member of the band seems to be giving 110% to the effort. There are so many great guitar riffs and base lines. The drumming is clean and sharp, and brilliant keys and vocals. Everybody gets to shine.

The overall feel of this record, for me anyway, is a sense of hopelessness (i.e. there are three songs about suicide), but I get from this that maybe sometimes it is just enough to get through/survive the day. It's honest. It's a great record.

Maybe it's because everyone here is on a somewhat similar wavelength (although I would argue that a lot of our wavelengths are not so similar), but I feel like I really can't fault any of these choices. They're all pretty great records. Go Columbus!
