Re: Father John Misty - Pure Comedy (4/7)

I can see this album causing him to lose some old fans and gain some new ones. It's definitely different from the other two albums but the progression from FF to HB to now makes sense. I do enjoy when he "rocks" out a little more, and this album is missing that. Otherwise, I'm digging it more with every listen.

Re: Father John Misty - Pure Comedy (4/7)

Yeah, maybe I'm just an "old" fan who is losing it with this.

The title track captures the essence of the record perfectly. I love the theme "Each other's all we've got." That really resonates.

It just feels like it's one giant song repeating the same ideas over and over. I keep wanting the album to "click" with me but it just drags.

We'll see what the tour brings.

fear fun has some great songs but it definitely meanders a bit + the production seems like a holdover from his j tillman days - which i guess makes sense - a bit of a transition

completely agree - listened to fear fun today for the first time in ages and was shocked at how nearly bare bones the production is compare to where he is at now ... also - id definitely prefer something along the lines of strange encounter or the ideal husband as well - but i guess i can understand wanting to keep things mellow for the most part and let the lyrics really shine through on this one

hes said that he already has his fourth and fifth albums written - will be interesting to hear what he has planned

that sentiment is an incredible one and its definitely something that needs to be pondered and appreciated in this day and age

yeah - variations on a theme - seems to be the one overall critique im reading most often about this album - someone posted an interview he did with zane lowe and it was interesting to hear him break down the album song by song - im hoping it will lend an additional perspective next time i listen

love this song

wish he would release an ep with this song and holy hell and the generic pop songs he recently added to his soundcloud - #16 is brilliant!

Re: Father John Misty - Pure Comedy (4/7)

been spinning this nearly non stop for the last week

the more i listen the more i notice that i tend to tune out for a few songs

not sure what it is but birdie - a bigger paper bag - smoochie and two wildly different perspectives dont do much for me ... anyone consider any of these songs to be a favorite? maybe if i got some feedback about these i could find a different way in and they might prick up my ears a bit more

otherwise i think its a pretty damn fine record - ive little doubt it will continue to hold my attention for a great long while

So what's story with the overt allusion to Heart Shaped Box?
