Some great songs in here, but overall it gets a bit boring. 7/10.

I saw Father John Misty perform live at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina, a few months after this album came out. It was one of the most painfully awkward and arrogant live performances I've ever seen. It made me intensely dislike Josh Tillman, and it diminished my appreciation for this album. Still, I can't dent it's one of the great albums of the twenty-first century so far. The songwriting is funny, clever, impeccable, and surprisingly moving, considering it came from a person as deeply off-putting as Tillman. "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" is an amazing song about having sex in a graveyard.

One of the easiest listens (in the best way possible) that I can think of. Lyrics are brilliantly entertaining. Catchy melodies all over. To top it all off, you get fantastic moments of sincerity from a guy that sings about drug use, sex, and the environmental impact of making an album. All it takes is a few listens and you'll find yourself humming Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings all the damn time. Look out for his upcoming release (in a few days).

I've heard he puts on a hell of a show as well. Seeing him in two weeks, so I'm excited to find out for myself!

Father John Misty is the moniker for former Fleet Foxes drummer Joshua Tillman. Knowing this helps you to understand the sound of this album better as it sounds a fair bit like a Fleet Foxes album. This album, however, does not sound like an exact copy of a Fleet Foxes album, but you can hear the similarities. The loads of reverb and the sometimes minimalistic sound. Tillman does a very good job on this album both lyrically and musically. The songs are interesting and the lyrics are engaging. It’s overall a very good indie folk rock album and I would highly recommend checking it out. It’s not perfect, but it’s very good and especially if you’re a fan of Fleet Foxes, check it out.

The first night that I got this album I listened to it repeatedly for 3 hours. It is so chill and easy to listen to, I just love it.
