Listening to it right now paying closer attention to the 2nd half I'm really digging the stretch in the middle with "Bummer", "I Wish You Were Fun", and "So Tell Me Mrs. Lincoln Aside from That How Was the Play?" (one of the best song titles ever). I get Indiscreet vibes from those.
I wish there was more uptempo stuff, this album has so many mid-tempo songs. FFS brought back their hyperactive side in a big way which I loved, and it's a bit of a letdown to hear them dial things back so much.
What's going on with that Leos Carax movie they're making? I want to see Adam Driver singing Sparks songs dammit! Carax has a guest spot on this album so I'm guessing the collaboration is still active.
