Fortíssimo entre melodias lindas e letras cínicas.
I don't want to be mean, but if you call the writing on this album bad you might need your head checked. Political commentary hasn't been this good since TPAB.
It's funny, cutting, self-aware, and postmodern. What more could you want from FJM?
Pretentious seems like a based criticism, but he's always self-aware, negating that argument.
Smoochie and Two Wildly Different Perspectives don't belong here, but the rest is a high water mark in 2010's folk ambition and execution.
This'll be a stone-cold classic in about 15 years.
When a 70+ minute album doesn't get you bored/tired/anxious, it means the artist did a great job. Congrats, Padre Juan Brumoso. 8/10.
Well written cynicism mixes with standard piano play to make a strange combination of interesting and dull.
I'm a big fan of Father John Misty and I Love You, Honeybear is one of my favourite albums from the 2010s. The issue with this album is its inconsistency: the title track is great, as is Total Entertainment Forever (along with a few others), but there are so many songs which are uninteresting and boring to me. I'm really interested to hear what FJM has to say next though, he is a very talented musician.
I came back to this album recently after initially being incredibly turned off by the last three-quarters of it. The first four tracks are all great, prime FJM. But god do I hate Birdie and Leaving LA. I think it's the combination of the soft, drawn-out feel of the songs and FJM's always-wailing vocal delivery that really grinds me. However, the tracks after that are all alright. The lyrics are pretty good (insightful and pretentious), and the music is pleasant enough.
Best Tracks: Ballad Of The Dying Man, Total Entertainment Forever, Pure Comedy
Came for the melodies, stayed for the surprisingly self-aware social commentary. 9/10
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
All of the tracks are at least good, but there are only a few tracks I would go out of my way to listen to.
Favorite tracks: Pure Comedy, Total Entertainment Forever, Ballad of the Dying Man, Leaving LA
Update to my previous post
“ Total Entertainment Forever “ is an amazing track & easily my favourite for 2017 . IMO it’s worth checking out this album for this track alone
