I don't like this album at all.
It was a huge letdown for me.

I love this album. I'm not sure if I like it more than their older stuff, but I still love it.

Parts of the second half are weaker in my opinion (Timothy Hay and Fig With a Bellyache are good but wear on me after a while, and I'm not a big fan of Cattail Down), but it picks back up with The King Beetle On a Coconut Estate and the untitled track.

My favorite tracks are definitely Goodbye, I; The Angel of Death Came to David's Room, and Bullet to Binary Pt. 2.

I'd give it an 85.

When I first listened to the album, I was incredibly disappointed - the hype backlash hit me hard.

However, I love mwY too much to let go on just a few listens. So I kept playing it. With just a bit of persistence, I love it for what it is, and it's one of my favorites of the year.

That's not to say that I don't wish it was more of a spiritual or musical successor to CFUTF or Brother, Sister, but the parables are poignant and smart (though rehashed), and Weiss' vocals really set the tone for an album that I don't believe would have been as good had his method of delivery been spoken word.

Love it.

oh first listen this became my favorite album of 2009 (or at least tied with March Hare's: Mister Nimbus). I've always loved mewithoutyou and have welcomed their transformation with open arms. I'm disappointed that there's 2 reviews on this CD on this site and yet none of the reviews point out the wonderful production work done by Daniel "Brother Danielson" Smith (who also produces Sufjan Stevens)
