New Facts Emerge

it's not going to jump up into the top tier of Fall LPs, that's for sure, but I still quite enjoyed it. on first listen, the first few tracks in particular struck me as really straightforward, but I came back around to them. the second half was a lot more energetic, fun and interesting... the usual Fall weirdness, basically. Mark sounds in pretty rough shape but I suppose it could be worse. and the loss of Eleni is notable... it's very very guitar-oriented without her. oh, and not sure how I feel about Nine Out Of Ten... might be one of those epic monotonous Fall tracks that I warm up to over time.
it's definitely not breaking any new ground from their last several albums. I seemed to like Re-Mit a bit more than others (there was a fair bit of aimlessness but a few great songs in there). but for me, after only 2-3 listens, this seems like another typical 7/10 2010s Fall record. curious to learn what you think after you check it out.
