I love this thing -- one of the year's best. Never thought I'd say it again about a Wainwright record.

I love this as well, and playing it continuously.
I can't quite pin down what it reminds me of exactly, but it has a nostalgic feel that takes me back to the 70s.

On first listen I was entirely underwhelmed. Much more soft rock than pop. And it's not the sort of soft rock that I find moving ('Art Teacher' was moving).

I really like this new one and I haven't even been remotely excited for him since the Want One/Two days. I love the 70s AM rock touches, I think they work pretty well. Kinda wish he'd lay off the gospel backing choirs on some of these though.
