The 100 Best Albums of the 2000s: 100-81

PopMatters' best albums of the 2000s begin with a series of records that span epic metal, ornate indie folk, and a terrifying work of electronic music.

The Clientele: Unreal and Alone: Best of the Clientele

Unreal and Alone: Best of the Clientele is a little short in the tooth, but a little always went a long way with this band.

Music

The Best Album Re-Issues of 2014

The music world saw reissues from all over the genre map, spanning classic rock titans to electronic music legends.

Music

The Clientele: Suburban Light (Reissue)

The Clientele were one of the greatest triumphs of the fickle aughts, and also one of the most overlooked successes of indie pop.

Music

The Clientele: Or Thousands of Prizes

The Clientele didn't exactly bring their A-game to this exclusive offer from Merge records. Lucky for us, their B-game is still a good one.

Music

Deleted Waveform Gatherings: Pretty Escape

The ambition of Pretty Escape is admirable, it but also reveals a gap between what the band is and what they seem to want to be.

Music

Amor de Días: Street of the Love of Days

Amor de Días feels a lot like a summery hiatus with an open-ended return ticket for Alasdair MacLean from his main gig, the Clientele.

Music

The Clientele: Minotaur

Whether it is a last gasp from an unusually consistent band, or merely a palate-clearing exercise pointing the way towards a perhaps more experimental direction to be found on a follow-up LP, Minotaur is buoyed by an excellent front half and a less stellar back end.

Music

The Clientele: That Night, A Forest Grew

The Clientele have once again proven they are the kind of great band that can try just about any sound they like, but still sound right at home.

The Clientele: God Save the Clientele

Nothing less, but little more than you would expect from this consonant British band

Less Smooch, More Dance: An Interview with the Clientele

The Clientele's Alasdair Maclean tells us everything we need to know, from A to K.

The Clientele: Strange Geometry

The new Clientele disc is awfully good, besting everything in Belle & Sebastian's catalog on an album-by-album basis save for The Boy With the Arab Strap and Dear Catastrophe Waitress.

The Clientele: The Violet Hour

The Violet Hour is something of a quest, where the manner of going becomes more consuming, and ultimately more important, than the impetus for pursuit.
