>>
>>62062127

Pic related makes you think it's a live album.

Remember when we used to think this was a joke album?

I was not expecting this album to sound like it does when I first listened to it.

>>62062374
came here to post this. You expect James Taylor folk and you get a psychedelic shrieking freakout
>>
>>62063757
looks like an "indie" pop album desu
>>
>>62063178

Without the edgy lyrics. Or without anything edgy.

>>62063268
fits the music quite well desu

>>
>>62062127

>>62063268
It looks like a boring guitar rock album from a quirky guy

The album cover set me up to be very pleasantly surprised the first time I listened to this. I was expecting some New Order shit.

i thought it was going to be a summer pop album with those dancy synths and all. it's misleading at first but it does fit the music pretty well.

>>62063268
what's misleading about this one?

not really misleading, imo
