Since this album was just rereleased on Domino Records, the almighty http://www.pitchforkmedia.com just re-reviewed it, with a new historical perspective on the album, sicne it's been out for seven years now, and gave it a 10.0! I can only remember one other album recieving a perfect 10 from p-fork (and they review 5 albums a day), which was, you guessed it, Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

Haha, I thought the same thing "Why is being re-released?"

Everyone who is going to buy that album, owns it already. And it was released on Merge, we're not talking super-indie. It's EASY to get a hold of.

I don't know about other E6 bands. I THINK, that a few others are getting their albums put back out there again on Domino. OTC, maybe. Apples? Dunno- can't remember.

Also, if you're a Clap Your Hands fan, do you like Wolf Parade?

Well, the new Wolf Parade album came out on Sub Pop. And my god, there was so much hype around that release. And I checked it out and it's really good, and the first comparison I thought of, was Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, mainly as a result of the similar vocal-stylings.
