I keep hearing about this album so wanted to check out the review before giving it a listen. Unfortunately (for Blood Orange) you lost me at "androgynous falsetto".

Haha, I wouldn't be a lawyer if it didn't interest me outside of just my day-to-day work. Besides, I work in-house. We don't do billable hours.
