BRING ME THE HORIZON - There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it, there is a Heaven, let's keep it a secret. - I never liked them before this album, now I'll have to check out their other stuff. Good lyrics. The band takes influence from Norma Jean but is from England.

Morella's Forest is one of my all time favorites - found them for super cheap as well when T & N were practically liquidating all of their pre-99 stuff back in a huge online sale in 2001. I've loved them ever since.
I've been mainly buying 7"s and 45's of late, way too many to list.
I don't listen to them much any more, but i really like morella's forest, too.
random memory: i saw them once at some high school in indiana. i was in grad school and i took a friend of mine with me. we were the only people there not in high school or a chaperone for someone in high school. was kinda weird, but they were great. and the drummer approached me to chat cuz i had a dead can dance t-shirt on.
my recent purchases:
naked raygun - 7" series #1 (digital only, tho)
the bomb - the challenger (e.p. that apparently came out this past october. side project from jeff pezzati of naked raygun. very good stuff.)
the black keys - el camino dan auerbach - keep it hid
les savy fav - inches les savy fav - let's stay friends
rosie thomas - a very rosie christmas
the marked men - the marked men
the joy formidable - a balloon called moaning (a band that would have been a good tourmate with morella's forest!)

If you heard any of the EPs, it's along that same level of song quality with better studio production. There's significantly less heavy moments than Everything Starts Where it Ends or even parts of Pretend You're Alive. It's a very different feel, but the songs are still good.
Since I was a part of their fundraising to make the album I heard a lot of the demos and other tracks they considered for the album. I actually think a lot of the tracks that were on the EPs that weren't on the album were just as good if not better.
That said I like all of their stuff and they're one of my favorites, so take all of that with a grain of salt I guess. I honestly have no idea why they never got huge after Pretend You're Alive came out.
