Music. Absolute music. This one has knocked me sideways. First up, the opener "All My Prophets" is up close for "best song ever" - truly, music does not get much better than the first 90 seconds or so of that song. And then the greatness goes on. Call WAXWING emo, indie, rock, all are as accurate as they are incomprehesive. The songwriting, heart, production, talent and just plain wonderment of this record is just plain incomprehensible. I vowed nothing could surpass THE CASKET LOTTERY as my album of this year, but this record may have just proven what a loser I am. Fellow fans, come round to mine and bring a bean bag. Let's sway, hug and pretend everything in the world is this good. Beyond awesome.
