This album is fuckin good. I got a free poster with it too. I've listened to it four times since I got it (got it this week sometime, maybe last week, just opened it this morning)

You had me at Helvetica.
This album is fantastic. Olson has really settled into his voice on this. He's peeled off the last layers of that affected crooner style and the result is a much more expressive and dynamic vocal delivery through the whole record. And the songs are his best ever. This is such an unfashionably good band.
sounds like a nice improvement from the last record.
i never knew why "albemarle sound" was named what is was until i found myself driving along side it most recently.
