A nice follow up to Pure Comedy. If I would use stand up comedy terms to describe the two albums, I would say that Pure Comedy felt like the punchline, while God's Favorite Customer was a tag. Oftentimes, a tag will get a good reaction from the audience, which is what I felt the case was here. At times, both albums share similar tones and themes. However, God's Favorite Customer is shorter and more varied. This album was definitely less ambitious and less conceptual than its predecessor, which is not necessarily a negative thing. There are a few weaker links here and there, and since the album is not as conceptual these points can stand out a bit more. But even the weakest points aren't actually bad. What really makes this record are Father John Misty's lyrics and songwriting. I think that "Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All" is a very well constructed song, and the vocal melody on "Please Don’t Die" is beautifully put together. He also has a knack for writing guitar riffs that feel so grand and memorable, such as on "We’re Only People (And There’s Not Much Anyone Can Do About That)." In addition, the instrumentation on "Just Dumb Enough To Try" is simply gorgeous. You might not get the bold artistic statement that you would find with his previous work, but its not necessary for every album to have that attribute. If you're craving a collection of quality songs with outstanding writing, this is the place to be.

Great variety while still maintaining an obvious connecting thread between all the songs on here. Not the most revolutionary thing FJM has ever produced, but I'm a big fan of it regardless. One of the best releases of the year, no doubt.

Even if it doesn't quite live up to the majesty and intelligence of Pure Comedy, that's not to run down Father John Misty's follow-up record. This is a concise, heartsick album that allows a little more space to breathe and enjoy than all his other releases. Some damn fine songwriting, mostly paired with impressively lush instrumentation (although the muddiness of some of the mixing detracts on occasion).

Better than "pure comedy"(a bore), but nothing like "I love you honeybear"(a classic). Very much Beatles-vibes on this la-la-record.

This is a relative return to form for ex-Fleet Fox Joshua Tillman AKA Father John Misty following 2017's bloated and ultimately boring 'Pure Comedy' & in fact this album feels bright and breezy in comparison

On this album the self loathing , deprecation and self parody are front and centre and the line between Tillman and Misty has never been so blurred with a collection of great tracks

F.J.M is back with one of the best albums in 2018

Much more musically varied than Pure Comedy, which to my ears is a good thing. There's less of a concept here though, which I'm also fine with. The songs are, as usual, thoughtful, intense, philosophical and hilarious. Jonathan Wilson's production is also brilliant, as always. I really want to hate him but I just can't.

A really comfortable listen. The voice is smooth and the songs are well written. There is real heart in this.

In my opinion, this may be his best. At least my favorite.
