NoLine for me. But this will be a close one at the end.

Prolly my two favorite post-2000 albums. NLOTH gets the nod, mainly because of Being Born and Cedars.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

I really had to think about this one. At the moment I'm going with SOI but tomorrow I could change my mind. They're both REALLY close in my book.

I really like both these albums. My decision boiled down to which album had the least clunkers. NLOTH has 3, SoI only has 1. So my vote takes SoI into a 10-9 lead

You were acting like it was the end of the world
