You might want to listen to this:
and read this:
I will probably go into this when I have more time...but the bile in this record really hit me. Not the obvious stuff that was present in Queen of Denmark, but more passive aggressive lyrics (like the beginning to It doesn't matter to him). It really hit me on my fourth spin, and I had to stop listening. I'd enjoyed the new sound up until then, too. I will give it a go when the dust settles, and there's probably a whole level of irony I've missed, but for now I'm quite disappointed. I've delved into The Czars stuff recently and became a fan, Grant seems to have developed this nasty streak just for this album.
Gonna buy it on Monday and listen to it on my own from start to finish.
Every other album this year is peripheral compared to this.
