Got it in the mail yesterday. The first listen didn't hook me as much as Ghost Town did, but this is a phenomenal album. Mike really can do now wrong. Love how A Fever sounds will full instrumentation.

i really hope time is kind to this man, because presently, i can't think of a more under appreciated artist.

really lets take everything into account.

for one, every record has that trademark Owen sound while all being totally different from each other, with no drop in quality over time at all. no easy feat, I'd say. secondly, take into account how complex most of his songs are, and how fully thought out and orchestrated they are. that's all impressive enough to win just about anyone over. then theres his lyrical abilities, which by now I shouldn't even have to address anymore. then throw on top of that, the guy is better than most bands are overall at their own instruments.

i'm hard pressed to think of a more talented overall musician than Mike Kinsella, for his era.

i am in love with this record. and blues to black is one of the most beautiful songs ever made.

the way his vocals fit on this album is really unlike anything else i've ever heard. his voice is so subdued, but the emotion in the lyrics and the power in the music really shine through. it's a great juxtaposition.
