Totally agree. It was a minor nitpick.

No worries. That post does read even clumsier than mine normally dp, but I hope you get the gist.

I'm glad to see the album still growing on people. It's certainly good at that. I only just recently discovered that I liked On My Way, despite my natural aversion to any song that begins with "ballerina" as a lyric.

I didn't mean to imply that I thought the interviewer went too far; I was merely responding to Cobbler's complaint. It's nowhere near up its own asshole like the Fiona Apple interview.

I personally got a lot out of the Passion Pit one as well.

I'm finally catching up with this. It's surprising how long it's taken me given how much I loved the first record and never really got tired of it even after everyone started making fun of it and being irritated by it which I never quite understood.

Read the Pitchfork piece last night. Man, that is so sad. I know several people with similar issues. There's so much you can do for bipolar disorder, too, with nutrition and supplements and brain food, but it's still tough.

So today my mission is to find an actual copy of the CD in an actual store because I don't want to wait for an online order. I am prepared to love it.

I'm also glad I saw them a couple of times open for Muse. They weren't great but I really had no complaints. I was just happy to hear those songs which, dark overtones or not, make me happy.

Mission accomplished. Liked what I heard in the car but I'll give it the headphones listen tonight.

Unlike my other favorite albums this year (F-App, Dirty Projectors), I have the urge to listen to this at least once daily.

This is going to be a serious #1 contender for me.

I might have to see what the fuck you all are talking about. If I don't like the album, one of you will pay.....and, let's just say that the cost will be prohibitive.

This makes me even more excited to hear it as this is pretty much how I felt about Manners.

NSW, I have no idea if you'd like it (or them) or not.

I listened to Manners again the other day, and no contest for me. This blows it out of the water. Just too many amazing hooks.

Wow. Okay, I'm finishing up watering the yard and then I'm going to put on the headphones.

Hooks? I dunno, it took a few listens for much of anything to stand out to me. Manners has far more highlights/obvious singles, though the lyrics and production have improved significantly.

Is there any song on this I will be returning to as often as The Reeling or Sleepyhead? I suppose that remains to be seen, but so far I haven't felt the need. It works better heard in sequence anyway.

It's really good. I'm returning to Cry Like a Ghost right away and then starting round 2. But yeah, on first listen not as many hooks as Manners, which was an instant addiction. But I'm definitely loving this.

Cry Like a Ghost makes me cry like a baby. For some reason.
