Looking like you are. It's just not my thing. I find both the vocals and the "musical sounds" extremely annoying. It doesn't help that it's got songs like "We've Got Your Back" and "I Just Sighed" making it look even worse. As far as the segues go, this isn't an album that flows particularly well anyway, and I don't see the segues as leading into any groups of songs which thematically or musically go together. It just seems kind of superfluous.

"Who Fell Asleep In" is just something we'll have to disagree on.

Plan A has a great chorus, but it's pretty jarring and haphazardly arranged. Definitely the weakest legit song on the album.

I still believe that There Are Listed Buildings is the weakest, simply because it sounds EXACTLY what you'd expect a Los Camp song to sound like. I don't dislike it, but it sure doesn't excite me.

After getting to know the album pretty well, I more or less agree with that. I'd also put "Who Fell Asleep In" in the "weakest" discussion, though.

I love it, too. It's all relative, you know? ...Although I do think that "Who Fell Asleep In" is actually a weak song, whereas I think that "There Are Listed Buildings" sounds like the "fast" songs on Challengers, by The New Pornographers--just a little bit off.

Who Fell Asleep In sounds VERY close to the more stoner Pavement songs (perhaps the closest they've ever come to this style of their major influence), and for that I really enjoy it. It's mellow but off-kilter and it doesn't surprise me that it puts off some people.

No, it's very good, works very well in that spot.

Certainly a better finale than the last album; this one has some damned strong shit in those last few tracks.

"Coda" is right up there, for me. Maybe my favorite song on the album.

Plan A always sounds soooooo much like Pretty Girls Make Graves (the band, not the song) to me. It's really distracting.

I still think it sounds like Hit the Plane Down, the way it sounds almost atonal in its composition.

At least Plan A has some momentum. Hit The Plane Down isn't just shit because of Spiral Stairs' vocals, but for the plodding beat as well.
