Favorite albums of last half-decade: Choose Yr Own Adventure

I’m regretting posting a series about my favorite albums that have come out since 2005, as this takes way too much effort.

The Pharmacy – Choose Yr Own Adventure (2008)

Hands down one of the best albums of the last five years. Epic psychedelic pop punk. Piano, harpsichord, violas, cellos, ooo ooo’s, synths, wailing guitar solos, catchy sing-a-long choruses. They’ve been on nearly non-stop DIY tours since they started, which was maybe in 2004 or 2005, I’m not sure. The same label that put out the Monsters From Mars Toxic 7″ put out their first 7″ as well and I’ve been the hugest fan since. They put on an amazingly intense show as a three-piece — some of the best shows I’ve been to.
