Camera Obscura is awesome. I love "Hey Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken"; fun, great-sounding music.

Their last album was pretty good, but my favorite is still 'Underachievers Please Try Harder'. 'Books Written for Girls'...its so right on.

I absolutely have to agree that UAPTH is perhaps their best album, although Razzle Dazzle Rose is my favorite song by them. I got to see them live back in July, and they are amazing!

I heart them :oops: as I love Belle and Sebastian... even if people I know want to draw lines and create two camps like those Elvis or Beatles people. I'm a Beatle by the way :wink:

They are indeed a great band to watch live! I was fortunate to see their show at the Scala in London, UK last month, and mellow songs like "Eighties Fan" sounded so uplifting. They played almost every great track for a live setting, except for "Let me go home", which I would have expected them to play in their encore, but nope.
