    For once I can't work out if Jesus Esquith Christ is kidding or not, even tho "use his music to affect social change" is some straight-up Threepio shit. :'( Amused by the AtEase takeover of this shoutbox tho, it makes me question the very nature of my existence. Am I a boarder or a scrobbler? Where do my loyalties lie when worlds collide?

    i disagree with wahdiohead. i think that this record is a bunch of BS. when i first got into kozelek i did so because he had passion and he seemed like someone who wanted to use his music to affect social change. but now he just noodles away and its like his songs dont even have anything to say to anyone but himself. its sad.

    Ugh I dont see where this is coming from. He's improved as a guitarist tremendously, and he wants to show that he can play. So he goes on little tangents and that somehow detracts from his songwriting ability? Sorry, p. bullshit argument. If I recall, his last album had one more song and was about 14 minutes longer and no one called wankery. He writes as well as he ever did and the classical playing is a bonus.

    I agree withTheUniversalMan, "Unfortunately, "good" guitar playing does not equal good songs". For me it's hard to top Carry Me Ohio, Lost Verses and many others... Yet it is not a fruitless exercise in listening. I think it will take me some time to get used to it. Kozelek is one amazing songwriter, who will continue to grow and write amazing shit.

    "HE'S NOT ROCK AND ROLLING ANYMORE :( :( :( I HATE HIM NOW>>>>>!!! " Just go somewhere else, but don't flood this shoutbox with utter nonsense. And by the way, TYPING LIKE THIS IS NOT REALLY ROCK AND ROLL EITHER.

    the new album is fucking incredible. i think it may just be his best yet.. which is ridiculous since april is one of my favorite albums of the last decade. mark is a genius. wow.

    The second half of The Leaning Tree kinda makes me wish he'd ease up on the whole double tracking his vocals business.

    i would prefer him to make more catchy songs like Carry Me Ohio. his voice alone with acoustic guitar just does nothing for me. /runs

    Some incredible guitar playing on AFP. Like Nick Drake incredible. Exceeded my expectations.

  • superelitist

    Whatever I was expecting, Mark has exceeded. The guitar playing is wonderful, lyrics typically impressive and engaging, the songwriting itself more adventurous than anything else in his catalogue. I look forward to spending a lot more time with these songs. (as for the title track - i'm glad he chose to do it in an understated fashion. It sits really well beside the live ensemble recordings from the Great American Music Hall in 2004!)

    Luglio 2010
  • Corblimeyguvnor

    Gotta say the final version of the title track is the one ever so slightly disappointing thing about the record. Based on the White Christmas live recording I was expecting it to be the undisputed centre-piece of the album and a career high.

  • bishopbolton

    I'm 8 tracks into the new album. I gotta say that I had my doubts about whether it could be interesting with 60 minutes of all-acoustic music, but it absolutely is. The guitar playing is fantastic, the songs are great, and while it does take some patience and attention span to get much out of it, I'd say no more so than April did.

  • heliotropic2005

    Also, just want to say I didn't have the willpower to hold out to street date before listening to it and just listening to the first track now - pure magic! Mark is a wizard of emoting through song - I've listened to April all this past week, too; getting back in the swing.
