Good review, Ryan. I still think this record could have been a bit shorter, but that's a small complaint. Only song I would definitely trim would be "M.O.N.E.Y." I also like the interludes, but think the record would do just fine without most of them.
That said, there are some really, really great songs here. I'm partial to "Robbers," "Sex," and "Is There Somebody Who Can Watch Over You." The latter gives me a "Beth/Rest" vibe, not just in atmosphere, but also in how it's a complete 180 from the rest of the songs on the disc.
