Loving the album.

How gorgeous is the title track? Damn. Great song.

Just what I was thinking, GAF. I'm only through track 6 but I almost had to pull my car over so I could weep for joy.

Even if this fails to hit the genius peak of something like Cannibal Resource, it's still damn great stuff.

The first half (not going to say "side") is significantly better. But Unto Caesar is a standout.

Favorites are Just From Chevron (THE COFF!), the title track, and About To Die.

Watching the end of the set they're doing tonight. The COFF! is now the only remotely attractive member now.

Useful Chamber is a beast live.

I'd like to include Dance For You among those favs I listed above.

Great track.

Why does almost every Dirty Projectors song seem to have a part where everything sounds like it's about to fall apart?

This was a little disappointing. A few songs I like quite a bit, but after the last album (which was the first I'd ever heard of them), I had higher expectations.

The first half of the record is better than the second.

Reckon this would be up my alley? Wasn't too taken with Bitte Orca, only heard it once or twice.

This album is worse than Bitte Orca. So, I mean, it's your call. If you can hear anything for free once, there's no harm in trying it. I wouldn't rush out and buy Swing Lo Magellan if I disliked Bitte Orca.
