The Magnetic Fields,'I',
This review is from: I (Audio CD)
The great majority of this album is perfect; the less successful tracks, 'I'm Tongue-Tied' and 'It's Only Time' (the latter being slightly schmaltzy)could, however, have been omitted and one feels that the album somewhat tails off after track 8. The cynicism of 'I Don't Believe You','I Don't Really Love You Anymore' and 'I Thought You Were My Boyfriend' is exquisitely incisive, and - far from being pretentious or overly-clever - Merritt's lyrics on these tracks are astute and introspective without being verbose.
