  1. Or you can just go to Polyvinyl’s website and preorder the 2xLP, CD, cassette, t-shirt, or sweatshirt, all of which include an instant download of the album in MP3s.

  2. Curious to see what people think of this. I think a lot of people are going to be glad that he switched it up from the soul/funk sound he was going for on the last few albums, but like those last few I thought that although this album definately had some really good moments, it was a little too all over the place. Usually I like songs that seem like two or three different songs in one but he pushes that a little too hard. I do need to give this a few more listens to develop an opinion on it, there is enough good stuff here that it could grow on me.

  3. I think it’s a pretty ambitious album. I also think I like the first half better than the second.

  4. Honestly, I like it more than anything they’ve done since Hissing Fauna. And everything before Hissing Fauna. Just everything they’ve done that isn’t Hissing Fauna. That could have been expressed in less words.

    I think it’s a solid early AOTY contender.

  5. This album is BRILLIANT! For sure the best of the year, I doubt I’ll be able to list to much else.
