Will it dominate end of year lists or may the early release have spiked its appeal 11 months later?
There's been a whole lot less fuss in general than Ys. The album for me is just too long to absorb and its fallen to the wayside compared to loads and loads of other records this year that have more staying appeal and accessibility (Titus Andronicus have succumbed to this as well). Not necessarily better, but certainly I'm spending more time with them.
Sorry Jo :(
