Check out the rest of their discography if you haven't already...a lot of people I know only like one or two records they've done.
Good review Ian. Still haven't gotten the chance to listen to it beyond the first track haha, but my what a beauty that first track is.
Thanks man! I hope you've checked it out since posting.
I think this is definitely their best album.
ive listened to them since "Her Majesty". Crane Wife was a big disappointment. I liked parts of PIcaresque, but this new album is their best stuff by far. Solid from start to finish. their past albums were more complicated and ambitious than this, and the simplicity of this album is part of why I like it so much. It relies on the great songwriting (lyrics and melodies) instead of on trying to wow us with crazy weird arrangements. Its alot more enjoyable this way.
My thoughts exactly.
"Down by the Water" was the only track she contributed to.
