this one was WAYYYYY better than i was expecting!!! it lowkey blew the previous like 4 albums out of the water!! (besides gratsax, that one can actually hold a candle) it's so innovative, so complex! i love love love how the title reflects the contents of the album cuz they *plagiarized* off themselves! genius!!!! as we know by now i'm both a sucker for electronic music and classical music, and while i've heard some sparks combine the two before (not including lil' beethoven rn... we will meet him soon !!), it has yet (chronologically) to be as flawless as this!
faves: angst in my pants, the no. 1 song in heaven pt. 2, beat the clock, both this towns, both something for the girls, amateur hour, big brass ring, WHEN I'M WITH YOU !!!, propaganda (OBSESSED with the extended version), the no. 1 song in heaven ft. somerville AND THEN HOW IT GOES STRAIGHT INTO NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON MOTHER EARTH ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? popularity i think is better in this version than the original hehe, funny face is so emotional now, change is straight up goofy /pos, AND OF COURSE PULLING RABBITS OUT OF A HAT, even orchestral collage is good... ALL OF THEM ARE AMAZING!!!!
now this cover... terrifies me. i do not understand it. it freaks me out i do NOT get the appeal. i can like see where their heads are overlaid, there isnt' enough contrast between ron's eyes and his glasses... but i mean if i don't look at their heads i guess it's fine maybe...
