      Well produced, vigorous folk punk with hints of REM throughout.

          Guess i'll step a bit out of line when i say that i believe this music and voice to be quite boring?

            REWIGLP21 B2 BE39693-01 B3 on side two. Can anyone please confirm, that this is the 2005 US reissue by Domino?

                I know a lot of people who hate this album, but I love it. Jeff Mangum's voice is definately an acquired taste. On first listen it sounds like whiney emo crap with some horns and acoustic ballads, but after a while the nightmarish and phantasmagoric lyrics worm their way into your brain in spite of the eerily "happy" music. Some of the songs here venture onto surreal hallucinatory planes that Syd Barrett only touched upon (the centerpeice, "Oh Comely," is particularly vivid). And yet it's all somehow hopeful and life-affirming. It's a concept album about life, death, rebirth, family life, the Holocaust and Anne Frank, I guess. I'll be damned if I can make heads or tails of it.
