Great review! Agreed on the above regarding "cringeworthy" lyrics. I think it all works quite well. "Jim Wise," which doesn't seem to be talked about much (understandably so), may be the saddest song on here for me, actually. The way he pairs the lyrics with THAT kind of melody makes it darkly humorous and yet still incredibly sad, which makes it all the more powerful and uncomfortable for me.
