Mercury Rev albums vary so much musically that it's impossible to say which is the best (though all are worth owning), but Boces certainly demands to be listened to again and again. Experimental but always listenable, I've yet to hear another album like it. My personal favourite tracks are the bizarre but wonderful Trickle Down, the intense joy of Bronx Cheer and the flute-led beauty of Down Are Feminine Balloons. But there's always something new to be gained from this album. Essential for fans of the band anyone who enjoys innovative, forward-thinkng music.
N.B. The tracklisting above is completely wrong (sort it out, Amazon!) and the song Frittering mentioned in a previous customer review is in fact on their debut album Yerself Is Steam.
