I like to wake up to old albums, ones I listened to growing up that annoy me now. Helps me get out of bed.

So when I helped myself to a listen of the new Wolf Parade, Expo 86, I realized the first track reminded me of a SevenMaryThree song -- and let out this long, slow breath that ended in a chuckle and an Oh, man...

Not that the new album is bad. It's not. It's just boring, which is a shame because With Apologies... is one of my favorites in the last few years.

Not that I'm in much of a position to judge what's boring and what isn't. I get a kick out of the fact that store in Russian is "mah-gah-ZEEN."
