Big Grin Fiery Furnaces 51 track live album!

And for the few of you that cannot handle the frenetic uber-medley that is a Fiery Furnaces live set, I want to make provocative documentary films about your inept and offensive taste and take them on the festival circuit.
-Fiery Furnaces 'EP' Review - Pitchfork

The Fiery Furnaces are amazing live. I've been blown away each time I've seen them, they even make the songs I don't enjoy sound great live. They're known for creating a gigantic medley of many of their songs and somehow managing to segue them together in a way that makes them sound like they were created to sound like that. This August a 51 track double CD Fiery Furnaces live album is being released. I don't think I've been as excited hearing about a live album since Radiohead's 'I Might Be Wrong'. Check this bad boy out:

Remember 2XCD tracklist:

Disc one:

01 Intro 0:41
02 Blueberry Boat 8:27
03 Single Again 3:33
04 Two Fat Feet 2:28
05 Don't Dance Her Down 3:26
06 Single Again (Reprise) 2:03
07 Wicker Whatnots 2:55
08 Little Thatched Hut 4:12
09 I'm in No Mood 2:59
10 Black-Hearted Boy 2:38
11 Bitter Tea 2:47
12 Waiting to Know You 1:34
13 Vietnamese Telephone Ministry 2:46
14 Oh Sweet Woods 2:31
15 Borneo 3:30
16 Benton Harbor Blues 1:41
17 Japanese Slippers 2:23
18 Benton Harbor Blues (Reprise) 1:03
19 Whistle Rhapsody 1:52
20 Crystal Clear 1:39
21 Whistle Rhapsody (Reprise) 1:15
22 Teach Me Sweetheart 3:41
23 Evergreen 1:37
24 Bitter Tea (Reprise) 1:30

Disc two:

01 Chris Michaels 6:57
02 Quay Cur 8:17
03 My Dog Was Lost But Now He's Found 2:52
04 Spaniolated 2:01
05 Name Game 2:27
06 Birdie Brain 2:28
07 1917 3:08
08 Slavin' Away (Intro) 0:18
09 Tropical Ice-land 3:29
10 Asthma Attack 1:44
11 Tropical Ice-land (Reprise) 0:26
12 The Wayward Granddaughter 4:38
13 The Garfield El 1:48
14 A Candymaker's Knife in My Handbag 1:08
15 Forty-Eight Twenty-Three Twenty-Second St. 2:40
16 Slavin' Away 2:58
17 Seven Silver Curses 1:40
18 Clear Signal From Cairo 1:37
19 I'm Gonna Run 2:26
20 Here Comes the Summer 3:15
21 Chief Inspector Blancheflower 2:31
22 Automatic Husband 1:38
23 Ex-Guru 2:34
24 Clear Signal From Cairo (Reprise) 1:39
25 Philadelphia Grand Jury 1:13
26 Navy Nurse 0:59
27 Uncle Charlie 2:17



I actually lost a lot of interest in this band as I was having a hard time keeping up with their frequent release schedule for a while, but I enjoyed Widow City and this live album has me crazy psyched.

can
not
wait

If this is true, then I am FLIPPING THE FUCK OUT, over here. Holy FUCK, this would be amazing...!

Blueberry Boat is one of my twenty favorite records of all time. I remember saying around the time that that record dropped, "I don't like you or want to have anything to do with you, if you don't like this record," to...well, to a female person I no longer know, I'll say that much. A few months later, of course, the 'Fork ran that now-infamous review in which Rob Mitchum says basically the exact same thing--we were hardly the only people saying things so outrageous, though, as this band was at one time the single most polarizing force in the musical world. I heard the same thing about a million times, back in 2004. Time hasn't been so kind to The Furnaces, nor has their prolificness, but those first two records (plus EP) remain some of the finest of, at the very least, the decade.

This could be a frighteningly perfect record or a total trainwreck. I'll hope for the former.

Sadly, though, the record is awful.

They sold them on their most recent tour, and I listened to somebody's (now regretted) purchase. Dreadful stuff, though I have to admit that with a running time of something like two hours, it does have a few tolerable/pleasant moments.

Yeah, this live album was painful to get through just once, what a terrible quality recording. Can't believe they were ok with the sound.

That said, I'm Going Away is the best thing they've done since EP. I stuck with them through all the albums since, and each one has had a few good tracks here and there, but I'm Going Away is solid. I'm really happy with it.

I'm not sure if this sounds cool or not, seems like it'll possibly be overkill. Hopefully they'll be free.
