This is streaming on NPR for those among us who have Catholic guilt.

 
Not actually Catholic.
 
No offense meant to any actual Catholics.

Damn, first Magnetic Fields album I don't like AT ALL, nothing interesting and I was actually quite glad I could turn it off when the last song ended.

No really catchy songs for me this time around, might have overdone it on the (lesser of the 2) woman singing as well this time.

Does he know you can actually turn an album/song off before it ends if you don't like it? I just got done saying I haven't made it through we take care of our own yet in its entirety in the Springsteen thread for that reason. How in the hell can one claim going back to the country and Andrew in drag aren't beyond catchy? What on earth do you consider catchy?

What, hipsterspork didn't like it either? Wasn't there a lot of hate for distortion, too? Or am I just remembering something wrong? My ears must be broken, apparently everyone hates the stuff I like. Oh dear. Whatever shall I do.

I never read that site, do all their reviewers write such stuffy, unnecessarily verbose essays that are 85% not even about the album the writer is reviewing?

Yes.

Sadly, that review is not out of step with the critical consensus. It has been unduly harsh on this album, especially after the last two were quite well liked. I think this one is a huge improvement, personally.
