As a Kansas native, let me say that I am not sufficiently seduced by this music record.

A somewhat hit or miss followup, and a veritable sea change in sound and style to the excellent debut full length "Nothing Feels Natural" that is weakened by unnecessary production choices but sees growth of vocalist KAG. Production choices for "The Seduction of Kansas" just strange and perhaps best showcased by the title track itself. The mix in this song is straight up bad. Throughout the album, the guitar track seems to change volume in 100% intervals while moving from the right channel to the left channel way out in outer space. This can be done effectively but there is often one, simple guitar melody and it often leaves KAG on a pedestal alone with no support. The same effects are often applied to the vocals and it is immensely frustrating because when played live a lot of the songs here carry as much raw power as Priests had on their last release but the production undercuts the recordings on "... Kansas" so hard. Jaguar also has simplified his approach just a bit too much, a lot of the guitar tracks feel dry and to minimal. Most of the tracks here are passable to really good but Priests seem to push their new sound to the limit on Youtube Sartre and Ice Cream which are misses. Highlights are Jesus' Son, Texas Instruments and Good Time Charlie.

It's not as good as their last record, but it's instantly striking. Less Sonic Youth infused, and more X-Ray Spex.

Something about Applebees? I dunno.

Damn, this is a pretty big disappointment.
