Not that I give a shit. A couple of weak minutes is no big deal after hanging with the Chuck Norris of indie folk albums for 45 minutes.
And that's with arguably the best song on the album still waiting after it. Heh, gotta go thru hell to get to heaven? ...or just skip 2 minutes of a song. Reminds me of the people outraged at the Chris Rock bit on Blame Game, to be honest.

Got my first 3 listens in today.....

I really really enjoyed it, I'm quite pleased.

The only thing I disliked was when a bunch of chickens showed up midway through the 10th song. Other than that, good stuff.

Chickens? I hear an elephant and a goose battling myself.

Know what really sucks about that song? The first part is so great, I always think, "Whoa, what track is this?!" Then I look and realize the song is going to make my ears barf in a few minutes.

I actually did that after about the second listen. The Shrine/An Argument now ends at 6:19 on U2inUtah's iTunes.

Gotta say though, the album as a whole is pretty great. Contender for album of the year for sure.

I really don't think that the ending of The Shrine / An Argument is all that offensive. I gather that it is intended to represent the entropy of a failing relationship, and it seems to accomplish that aim fairly well. They might have gone about doing so a bit more subtly, but I admire that they tried something different.

The Shrine/An Argument is still the best song on the album because the first part is so awesome. The way he sings Sunlight over me no matter... is unbelievable. Also, the horns at the end aren't that bad. They even work in the beginning but then they stay too long.

Anybody care to guess what all the apple and orchard talk is meant to mean?

The horns are, unfortunately, wretched, but, I'll suffer them because the track is gorgeous prior to that.

Album has sunk its hooks into me, really enjoying it.

I'm not sure how I feel about this album yet. It's okay, sure, but I don't know how I can keep enjoying their formula. None of the songs really stand out like Mykonos or Blue Ridge Mountains - sure, it's a big call for anyone to write songs that luscious, but those two tracks go beyond "just another Fleet Foxes song" and straight into all time awesome territory for me.

I wasn't too offended by the horns on The Shrine/An Argument, though.

Sometimes I get the "green apples hang from a green apple tree" part stuck in my head for hours when I'm at work.

Great. I sell my tickets for twice face value and can still hear it anyway.
