I haven't given out a five star rating in a long time.  In fact, I think the last one went to the Jam in 1980 for Sound Affects. Wow, that actually bums me out.  Maybe I need to be less stingy.

In any case, this was brilliant.  The songs were hauntingly beautiful; without invoking Nico level sadness, they made me feel, man.  I guess the best way I can describe it is peaceful.  It wasn't unbearably morose or relentlessly cheerful and in that way, it felt..whole.

Anyway, here's hoping more five star albums are on the horizon.  Did I really not give Elvis Costello five stars??  I have problems.

RATING: 5/5
