Would you recommend any of his solo albums? I like the guy enough with MF, I'd think it'd be like an SM situation where his solo stuff would be enjoyable like automatically.

I've not heard any of his solo albums. :sad: I've just been too addicted the Mag. Fields' stuff to get past it.

Did Merritt actually write for those projects or just sing on them? If he wrote for them, I'll add them.

All the Umbrellas in London is just exquisite, especially the live version they played on KVRX with strings and shit.

YES! YES! YES! One of my favourite songs ever and probably my favourite single ever. And some of the live versions on youtube are just amazing.

For some reason they are my favourite band to listen to in the gym. 100,000 Fireflies still gives me goosebumps.

I love those first two albums so much. Well, I have the twoforone compilation of them and always listen to it as one album.

"Lovers from the Moon" "Jeremy" and "Falling in Love with the Wolfboy" especially are 3 of my favourite songs ever.
