4.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF THE PACKAGING, 23 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Acid Tongue (Audio CD)
On first listen this is pretty good. Better than her last album or any of the Rilo Kiley albums.Very mature with lots of interesting arrangements and instrumentation. So 4 stars for the album.

However, I wouldn't usually review an album on the strength of one listen, but what I really want to do is warn prospective purchasers that this comes in a card sleeve.Something Amazon's description fails to mention. And it's not even a good card sleeve. In fact I've got cd singles with more and better packaging than this. Frankly, for nine quid this is abominable.I would only knowingly have bought this if there was no alternative.My advice to anyone wanting to buy this album is to first see if you can get it in a proper cd case.And if you're a fan of Jenny Lewis I'd certainly recommend this.

I'm absolutely with you about the packaging, I just received this and I must say I'm really disappointed with it. Especially if you consider that I bought this from amazon only for the packaging (jewelcase i mean), since I already bought the album on itunes some time ago.

I'm afraid I'll have to buy the vinyl LP sometime soon to be satisfied with my collection :| (I know, call me pathologic, and sorry for my bad english).

EDIT: about the album, I must say I liked some rilo kiley's works (execution and more adventurous) and also rabbit fur coat a bit more than this, but imho it's a 5 star nonetheless and I hope jenny lewis will come up with a new album soon :)
