A story about this — 5 years ago
Greg’s entry describes exactly how I felt about this album.
I love “Jesus, Etc.” – it was the first song I ever heard by them and I fell in love with it. But too many of the songs end with annoyingly drawn out…stuff, and maybe to some people that’s cool and “experimental,” but I just think the whole thing is sort of inaccessible. I once listened to “Poor Places” while walking alone at night, and the voice at the end robotically repeating “Yankee. Hotel. Foxtrot.” creeped the heck out of me.
