A Listmania! list by Luann Yetter
 
12 Tales from Winter City
1.  12 Tales from Winter City by The Young Republic
The list author says:
  "Girl-group innocence, folk whimsy, country pathos, jazz refinement, big band punch, rock swagger, orchestral grandeur…It’s all here in an album rendered cohesive by consistently intelligent lyrics."
£12.48   Used & New from: £0.24
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Cassadaga
2.  Cassadaga by Bright Eyes
The list author says:
  "Drawing lyrical inspiration from spiritualism and musical inspiration from country fiddle and steel guitar, Bright Eyes is never afraid to adding classical strings when the moment calls for them.."
£5.53   Used & New from: £0.44
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Four Winds
3.  Four Winds by Bright Eyes
The list author says:
  "With the exception of the title track, the songs on this EP are too quirky for album release.  But they have their own charm, especially “Reinvent the Wheel.”"
£0.58
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Neon Bible
4.  Neon Bible by Arcade Fire
The list author says:
  "Fist-pounding, oddly uplifting, toe-tapping stuff.   This cosmopolitan, Montreal-based band has somehow discovered they were born to run."
£6.99   Used & New from: £1.02
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (120 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

We'll Never Turn Back
5.  We'll Never Turn Back by Mavis Staples
The list author says:
  "Staples tells the story of her people’s struggle in an authentic, soulful voice.  Production by Ry Cooder propels the album into territory occupied by the best gospel rock fusion."
£14.11   Used & New from: £7.87
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

I'm Not There
6.  I'm Not There by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "The best tribute albums bring something new to the material, allow us to appreciate good artists in good new ways.  This collection of Dylan covers does so masterfully."
£8.69   Used & New from: £4.78
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

The End Of History
7.  The End Of History by Fionn Regan
The list author says:
  "Mail boats and fox runs and church candles wrapped in newspaper and a hundred other offhand references to rural Ireland are part of what make this collection of songs so engaging."
£6.00   Used & New from: £0.34
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Hardwire Healing
8.  Hardwire Healing by The Dexateens
The list author says:
  "Gradually you realize you’re listening to a plea to Neil Armstrong to come down from the moon despite the hassles he’s sure to face back on Planet Earth.  Somehow David Bowie meets Lynyrd Skynard."
£7.23   Used & New from: £3.21
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Lynn Teeter Flower
9.  Lynn Teeter Flower by Maria Taylor
The list author says:
  "Taylor’s sensual voice works well with these tales of cautious love and wry loneliness.  Subtle arrangements provide mellow underpinnings."
Used & New from: £4.18
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Wincing The Night Away
10.  Wincing The Night Away by The Shins
The list author says:
  "James Mercer sings gorgeous melodies in a lovely choirboy voice.  Sonic touches reflect a new millennium sound, but sometimes at their best this band echoes sixties pop."
£12.49   Used & New from: £1.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)
