I'm having a hard trouble hearing the lyrics on this album. Is it just me?
To be fair, it is a collab with Jesu. You sort of have to expect to lose the luxury of hearing the lyrics
I think that's especially true for the first few tracks. I had an easier time making them out with headphones, but my speakers are shit anyway.
Also, I'm not sure if I'm just no longer bored of Jesu or if Mark's vocals worked really nicely with the instrumentals. I really enjoyed this, considering I haven't cared for either Mark or Justin's latest stuff.
hes just reading fan letters and whining about p4k
grumpy old man
atleast he didn't sing fanfiction like universal themes. I mean did he really have to write"'And I walked her drunk ass back to her room
And like a gentleman, I didn't try"
I'd say go for the experience; it's something different. I'm a massive Jesu fan, I'm not madly into Kozelek (although I really appreciate his artistry and song writing), but I'd definitely go and see them if I had the opportunity.
Yes. Not a massive fan, but I remember liking that first Jesu EP (Heartache, I think) very much. I really don't remember it being this repetitive. Haven't really paid attention to his newer stuff.
i think it clashes in an interesting way, kinda like with lulu. though it didnt totally hold my attention i found lulu to be fascinating in that it wasnt anything id really heard before, and i feel the say way about this. or at least the metal parts. the dumb trip hop bullshit was just headscratching honestly
Decent to strong seven.
I'm unfamiliar with both Jesu and Sun Kil Moon so came at this album from a complete outsider's point of view, but I certainly enjoyed it.
Took me a while to get into the whole rambling-talk-singing aspect at first but by the time the album was over I was quite absorbed. Really loved the closing track, the ambient backing's gorgeous and I liked how totally mundane the lyrics were.
It's not something I'd listen to often, I'd have to be in a certain mood to dip in again, but I liked it.
Assume they'll mostly play stuff from the record and stuff that fits Kozelek's performances, so probably most of the album +1/2 SKM songs +1/2 Jesu songs
So, like, go if you like the album.
Only heard Kozelek & Dillinger so far but it's kind of an ear worm even if it is a little repetitive. How does the rest of the album stack up?
