April is possibly better than this then the next two had some quality material (Among the Leaves t/t is incredible), some of the side projects have good moments too, then the new stuff is arguably more interesting than this period as he's gone RHP level ultra confessional. He's still a great song writer - Gustavo, You Missed My Heart, Micheline...I won't hear a bad word against but I get some will jump ship if what they enjoyed has left his current muse.



I'll always see a bit of a 'Dylan plugged in his guitar harrrumph' in that reaction though

It's one of his weakest but I'm surprised anyone who listens to a lot of Kozelek could have such a strong reaction to it

Admiral is great but when Mark said in an interview he didnt want to carry on recording that type of album over and over again I got it - I wouldn't have wanted to listen to that sort of material again and again. Pleased he went off on a load of curve balls

I wasn't challenging just relaying and trying to defend the direction he took (which you said you've grown to like)



I love the new stuff, it's like story books with incredibly evocative musical backing that end up becoming inherited memories. I think Benji is close to absolute genius, how fans can't be moved by Micheline or Gustavo or Jim Wise... :/

People throwing accusations of laziness at him for that album beggars belief as far as I'm concerned



I enjoy that his musical career so far can be loosely split into three very different style periods, all equally impressive

Benji is still weird for me but I don't hate it, it's really just like this loose storytelling thing he's doing, at times though the music and the lyrics join up in a way that really does point to genius, Carissa does that through pretty much the whole song.

I like this the most for a more active listening experience. But April is my go to in times of zone out intoxication.
