Now that you mention it, yes...reminds me a bit of the solo in Have a Cigar, which also comes in abruptly and is rather frenetic.

Yes that's it. What a shame I don't know anything about Pink Floyd

Didn't like the second half as much as the first but I'm sure it'll grow on me. Will delete the version I downloaded when I get home and buy the cd tomorrow

I like this more than the new Girls album, and I admittedly have no history with St. Vincent at all.

The Girls album is so great, but there is only one AOTY.

She plays all the guitar parts and some of the keyboards.

When I first listened to Actor I thought, that's quite nice. But when I saw them on ACL, I was so blown away by Annie. Seeing her/them changed my entire impression.

I haven't heard anything from the new one yet and everyone's good reviews is making me excited to hear it.

Strange Mercy is a massive upgrade from Actor, in my humble opinion: much more cohesive, adventurous, and musically accomplished. The thing is brimming with confidence, and justifiably so.

This is why I can't wait to hear it. I sensed something in them live (on TV) that I didn't really hear on Actor.

Her albums have gotten progressively less twee as she's gone along, with greater emphasis on her guitar playing, which is an improvement in and of itself.

Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood and Just The Same But Brand New are still my favorite songs of hers, but Surgeon is right up there, and Strange Mercy is overall a more fulfilling journey.

Been listening to this a lot the past couple days. Agreed with elmel on all accounts. Fantastically well put together album.

Surgeon is certainly one of my top 3 songs of the year, for what it's worth.

She has a really nice duet with Andrew Bird in his Fever Year documentary.

The CD is a digipack? Either way, it's still got the lyrics in there.
