There are so many individual songs on here (The National, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Beirut) which are worth buying it for individually, and every time I dip into it I find something else to love. Best compilation album of modern times.

The crème de la crème of the American indiewereld supplied exclusive tracks for this compilation on two CDs. With contributions from the likes of Antony, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, My Morning Jacket, Arcade Fire and David Byrne.

Agree with that, however don't like the language. A highlight of this compilation is also the The Decemberists' track in my opinion.

A really nice, varied compilation, feat Grizzly Bear, Justin Vernon and a whole host of other people.

There is a LOT of stuff on here. Highlights for me are the Sufjan Stevens track(s), a rare electronic excursion and Justin Vernon/Aaron Dresner's track. There are some proper stinkers on here to however. Quite why the Brightest Diamond's cover of Feeling Good made the cut is beyond me. Whoever made that decision needs to be shot.
