Amazing but at times Pretty unlistenable.
25 February 2018
It's a beautiful package, the artwork and text is stunning and charming, but every time I try to listen to it, the flow of beauty is interrupted by such overloud and overproduced noise like Ray's Dad's Cadillac and Dancing Clown. I get that it's designed to tell a story, but her most beautiful work from the earlier albums is woefully underrepresented in favour of jarring noise. So every time I try to listen, I hit skip, skip, til I realise it's just not working for me.
Edit: Decided to give this another go on hearing it’s soon to be reissued on vinyl and now I feel bad. Yes I still struggle with a couple of tracks that I think ruin the flow, but the rest is SUBLIME.
