Mew – The Seething Rain Weeps For You (2005)

I love Mew, and although they have slightly been suffering from diminishing returns with each album, they get away with it because the magnificent Frengers (2003) set the bar so high. They combine saw-toothed guitars with a Scandinavian sense for soaring melodies (see also: Sigur Ros) and aren’t afraid to go all prog once in a while.
