Wolf Parade: Apologies to Queen Mary (2005)

Lèse majesté it is not. In fact, the only aspect that might render this supposed indie classic unpalatable to the genteel (who constitute their fan base, but nevermind) is their trade-off vocals, which has been done better by countless alternative acts. I can't accuse them of laziness, but they're certainly inconsistent, if not haphazard. As far as innovation is concerned, this is straight up alternative-rock, only more childish. On "You Are a Runner and I Am My Father's Son” and “Shine a Light," though, this puerility pays off. The rest you can skip.
