slightly older album recommendation

The Dears - No Cities Left (2004)

This album is phenomenal. The instrumental and orchestral arrangements are so good. Vocals-wise, this is as solid as it gets. There's an edge of melancholy but mostly an unyielding urge to just scream the lyrics out loud at every given opportunity. Beautiful pop rock, or whatever genre this fits in. Incidentally, The Dears also released a 2008 LP, Missiles, which is pretty damn great as well.

From No Cities Left, here's Lost In The Plot, live:
