Somewhere Shouter solemnly nods while listening to "Drop It Doe Eyes."

Utterly spectacular. And the music wasn't bad either.

Real talk though: one of my favorite shows ever. Really heavy on the new shit, but it was all so loud and expansive that I didn't mind only getting one Marry Me jam. Only Strange Mercy track she dodged was "Hysterical Strength," which is just as well considering it's the only one I'm lukewarm on. And holy shit, that Pop Group cover? Filthy.

See her tour this album. You will not regret it.

I'd love to, if she comes here. Doubting it strongly. Quickly becoming one of my favourites of the year.

I wanted to see her, but the tickets here were long sold-out and going for very high prices through the online scalpers.

It seems that Cruel is the track being played on the radio right now. WXRT has picked it up. Strange, as I thought Northern Lights had the greatest commercial potential.

A buddy of mine is going to be at that same show. He is very upset with having to pick a show to attend between St. Vinny and Childish Gambino since they're on the same night. It's like Sophie's Choice all over again.

This is a top five album of the year for me. Cruel and Cheerleader are two of the best songs of the year.

I have it sitting at number three at the moment, and it may move up one more spot before the year is done. Surgeon and Chloe in the Afternoon are my favorites - the vocals on the former continue to astound me.

I think it's like 7th or 8th for me, I can't remember. It's short enough that I keep re-listening to it, which is always a good sign for future rankings. Might be top 5 by the end of the year.

The one thing I can't get past is the chorus of Chloe In The Afternoon. It's just awful, and the rest of the song is great. Trying to cram the song title into the chorus as many times as possible does not a great chorus make.

Surgeon is possibly my favorite song of the year. That quirky guitar is so good. The second half of the album is also very strong.

I can't listen to it without hearing Have a Cigar. (not an insult)
