Nice review man, pos'd. Can't wait to hear this.

One thing: "especially scene as the perennial themes of depression and mortality are this time approached from a completely different perspective."

Shouldn't that be "seeing" and not "scene"?

No. Maybe it's just cultural differences, but where I'm from "scene as" is perfectly common as well as grammatically correct.



Thanks for all the kind words, and to whoever's responsible for having this featured.

i actually preferred winter of mixed drinks to midnight organ fight - less baggage, easier listen, etc. - but i was iffy on my first listen of this

yeah I've talked to a lot of people that were the same way regarding those two albums. it seems that most of the people that really liked WoMD aren't warming up to this so much.

I would say yes. The review actually addresses this quite well.



Indeed whereas Organ Fight hit hard through wallowing in it's author's misery, Pedestrian Verse seemingly carries a tone of acceptance, whereby Hutchinson apparently comes to term with his demons and learns to embrace the joyless bastard he is (his words!).



It definitely carries heavy emotional weight in much the same was as Midnight Organ Fight, but the approach and tone is different this time around. It's also not a stunner but more of a slow-burner that gets under your skin.

STOP SHOUTING!

After further investigation it looks like I'm going to have to grudgingly accept defeat on this one. It's strange I've been using that term as long as I can remember and no one's ever pointed it out. Oh well.

I don't understand the "uninspired" tags. Lyrics are superb, and they found a nice balance of climax and restraint (that's what she said).

To be fair this didn't do much for me either at first, although uninspired isn't the word I'd have used. Obviously I found it to be a massive grower, though whether other people give it enough of a chance is another matter.
