Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Wanting to rock out/dance.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It creeps me out, I love it.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Own it on vinyl, haven’t spun it yet, though.

Final Thoughts:

This is one of those albums that I didn’t know how familiar I was with it until I sat down and listened to the whole thing. Damn every second song is one that made me have an “oh yeah, this song is friggin’ rad” moment. Thee Oh Sees will always be one of those landmark bands for me, a band that points to a specific time in my life as well as a gateway drug to some of my other favourite bands currently. The Master’s Bedroom Is Worth Spending A Night In is the bridge between the old Oh Sees and the current Oh Sees, it helps explain the evolution of the band. It’s a great record for newbies to start with, as well as just a really solid album in general. Easy to dance to; easier to dance to with a cheap beer in hand.
