are really brilliant.
I got Get lost and its really amazing
(although I think that's a Merrit solo album rather than a Magnetic Fields album)
a girl i went on a date with once put it on the stereo when we got back to hers. the experience left me mentally disturbed.
is one of the greatest records I've heard.
I dunno if it's still around, but it's got The Wayward Bus and Distant Plastic Trees, which are the first two album (I think), and it's totally great, has 100,000 Fireflies on it amoung others.
Also the 6ths album is worth tracking down, Merrit's songs covered by a bunch of indie types, released around 93, 94.
are my favourites. But a lot of people seem to think "I" is rubbish. 69 love songs is the obvious first buy.
It has 69 songs and you'll be amazed how many of them are actually proper songs and really good too.
