Favourite Song on Album:
Listen to This Album When You’re:
Wanting a laid back album to turn your brain off to.
Thoughts on Album Cover:
It’s incredible, best part of this album.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
Just want it for the cover, but no I won’t actually own it.
Father John Misty’s been on a mental block for me for some time now. Mostly it’s one of those things where a ton of my friends wouldn’t shut up about it and I got weird and stubborn and just didn’t listen to him. I’d be lying if I didn’t find it a little over-hyped, I mean there are a few good tracks on this album, but was it something completely unique that caught me off guard? Not really. While he shines on a few tracks I can’t see myself going out of my way to listen to another one of his album (unless my friends get oddly aggressive and force me to).
