Neko Case - Middle Cyclone

Anybody else picking this up today? I am relatively new to Neko Case, having seen her open for Rufus Wainwright two years ago and purchased Fox Confessor Brings the Flood last year. The single, "People Got a Lotta Nerve" is pretty swell, and the early reviews are among the best of the year.

I'll post my thoughts on the album later, but for now - what other albums do you veterans suggest? I'm headed to Borders in between classes and may bulk up my purchase.

Oooh, I didn't even know about it! I am sure I will pick it up during my lunch run to Best Buy, located inconveniently on the other side of town. I think Neko Case is the cat's meow. I only have Fox Confessor and some other random songs, and an NPR live show.

Waits for elfa...

This is a really good album...

A little less country this time around a little more rock n roll

I like country Neko. She's the real deal. I just perused some reviews (ha) and see it has a nice line-up of guests, like Calexico and M. Ward.

I can't see you not liking this, my only complaint so far is that most of the songs are too short.

I'm listening to the bonus track right now; Marais La Nuit - it's 31:39 long... I'm 3 minutes in so far and it's nothing but crickets...

31 minutes? Really? That's barely a record proper.

Maybe that explains the $7.99 price on Amazon.

I don't see how you can go wrong with that voice, though.

ok, I skipped ahead and it looks like it was all crickets... cool and useless at the same time

Not sure how I would rank it in terms of bonus tracks though,,,

Oh. You meant that literally. I thought "nothing but crickets" was some kind of weird Canadian expression that meant, "it's all sugar & spice and everything nice, you'll LOVE it!"

or nothing but net?

no, in this case it's just crickets - it's kind of neat, in a peaceful sort of way, but 31 minutes is a tad excessive...

I’m not sure if it’s on the CD though – iTunes lists it as a bonus track so...

maybe you can answer my question then, is Marais La Nuit the last track on the cd?
