Long, but it doesn´t feel that long until disc 3.
Light, sunny, cool, not too serious.. Love it!
Cool voice too.
Reminds me of 'Belle & Sebastian' and 'Jens Lekman'.
Quantity over quality.
These are wonderful songs...is it strange to wish that they were sung a bit less ironically?
Quite successful as a project. Must be Hank Williams night at the cabaret! Maybe Todd Rundgren and early Talk Talk showed up too to provide the interludes.
Almost too much to handle, and part of me wishes it was widdled down a bit so that only the strong to good tracks stand out. Even then, about 2/3 of this is in my listening rotation
A hugely ambitious piece of work. 69, doesn't always work and there's always going to be some filler(how fucking romantic, is terrible), but when it works(I don't believe in the sun, and, Busby Berkeley dreams), it's wonderful. Good idea, but maybe a little too ambitious. 39 love songs would have been fine.
Creating this album was a clearly a very creative process for Magnetic Field. This is why the album succeeds. Its not afraid to try something different, the result is something original and varied.
The first time my wife and I listened to it we laughed at it. It seemed like a joke. Now the damned thing has taken over our lives. How can such apparent nonsense be so damned affecting?
This is one of those things that is either genius or the stupidest thing ever. At times the performances/ideas are amazing and sometimes it's just terrible... but in a genuine terrible way... like on purpose almost. It's like a trick.
