...Odyssey in Confusion and Contemplation (Jan. 2007)
This is one of my albums that I'm a little indifferent towards, or one that my opinion of it often changes, for better or worse. Depends on my mood going into it, I guess. Then why bother posting it? Why not? Several friends have said that they didn't like it much at first, but in time grew to like it. Besides, it's not like you're BUYING it. I could really care less about your precious hard drive space.
This was an earlier, somewhat subtler, step away from "nice" music. Niceness still exists in the music, but the lyrics took a drearier turn (the title of the album makes it sound like a romp, I know). However, there aren't too many cringe worthy moments for me, despite some not so hot mixing at times. Oh well.
This album does kind of follow a story line, but it's not worth trying to figure out. I guess i knew it at the time by obscuring the lyrics under a swirling mass of lo-fi noise folk.
ahh, fuck it.
Get Schlitzed...it can't hurt.
