Wonder if the booklet will come with a 13-page treatment for a video game this time around.

The Pitchfork review for this is one of the stranger ones I've seen. It reads like a 2.0 but then is awarded an 8.8.

So, the aforementioned colored vinyl ended up being a disaster...the pop-up book cardboard in the middle warped a lot of the LPs, causing SubPop to have to press up some new ones and do a lot of returns...

My preorder should arrive soon and I'll give word on the cassette demos. It's interesting that the vinyl is actually at 45 speed over the two discs....tends to be the method of choice for those going for sound quality on 12" as it means wider grooves because the sides are cycled through much faster.

Really, really like it. No tracks quite jump out at me like Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings or This is Sally Hatchet, but I think it's much more consistent as a whole. A big step-up in most departments. A lot more going on musically (take True Affection for example, did not think I'd ever hear an electro FJM song and it is fucking fantastic) and as gump says, so much interesting stuff in the lyrics. Really think it's going to reward future listens and become a firm favourite, certainly over Fear Fun at the very least. Other highlights for me were When You're Smiling and Astride Me, The Ideal Husband (that is going to fucking rule live) and Holy Shit.

The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apt. might contain the best, most brilliantly acerbic and funny set of lyrics I've ever read. A song about a horny man disgusted by a lover's poor grasp of grammar, but still fucking her because his dick's hard. And it's a great song to boot. Utterly brilliant.

This guy is a tremendous lyricist. That's fortunate for the album, because it gets a little shapeless in the middle musically. The night Tillman came to our apartment is a good example; without the story-telling, that song would be pretty forgettable. There are some excellent tracks, though - especially Chateau Lobby.
