So. I haven't listened to The Fiery Furnaces before. It's my first time.
Oh, My God.
I have no idea what the hell to say so far. I know I'm going to listen to this again and again, but wow. What is this?
It's so far over the top and bizarre. It's about time someone came about and did something to make Tales of Topographic Oceans and Lamb Lies Down on Broadway seem like concise and immediately-accessible works. This is what I love about prog-rock. All the glorious excess of King Crimson or Genesis or Yes, but done in one's garage by a real brother and sister.
