Been listening to this LP a ton lately. This band has got their shit together on so many levels. Truly an engaging aesthetic experience. Very sorry to have missed them in SF back in april or whatever.

i always felt that they write these albums that sound like varied "a clockwork orange" soundtracks. the horns, synths, and esoteric guitars are very reminiscent of sometihng as dark and sexy as that film.

i would also like to add that the "lead" guitar line in "Spring and By Summer Fall" is so great, so jazzy. i love it.

yeah it didn't grab me....what they do is always on the *verge* of being kinda boring but somehow they've managed to make it magical most of the time

the last one was more than on the verge of boring actually. big come down off the previous three or four albums. it's pretty and all but not memorable.

haven't listened to this in forever. Going to give it ago now. Think it may bring back to many memories of putting it on cdrs for girls I was into that weren't into the kind of music I was.
