It took me eight million years to get around to buying this album, but I finally did and so far I’m in the solid “wow” camp. If I sound hesitant, it’s only because I looooooooooved their first album when it came out, but then realized there were only three or four songs on it I could live with.
So, I think this album is brilliant and interesting and goes so far above and beyond their first album that it’s like the difference between a sunflower seed and a sunflower, but I’m worried that, after a few months, I won’t care for it.
I don’t think so. I think it’s much more sonically sturdy. But, I’ll admit, when I bought their first album, I could immediately think of ten people I thought should listen to it. This album I just want to put on and sit my headphoned self out at the edge of the world and watch the sun go down.
