If you're the kind of person who already owns Blacklisted, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, Furnace Room Lullaby, and perhaps even Canadian Amp or The Virginian, then definitely buy this album. But if you're new to Neko, or have maybe one album and are looking to expand your collection, pick up the other albums I listed first. And if you're looking for live Neko, start with The Tigers Have Spoken. In general, this is the last album of hers I'd recommend - although I still recommend it, on the grounds that I recommend that serious music lovers should own everything Neko Case has ever recorded!
The problem here is that it's too sparse and downtempo to sustain a whole album. It's an interesting experiment for a while, but several songs need a fuller sound, and the overall flow needs some uptempo. It's a good album to have in a shuffle mix on your iPod, but not to listen to straight through - try one of her phenomenal studio albums for a taste of what she can do with pacing!
Don't let this discourage you from buying this album, though... just buy other Neko Case albums first.
