Frown Song and Effington sound great.  This is going to be a hell of an album.

This may have already been posted somewhere but...

The interview was good. He talked about the projects he's thinking about over the next few years, which includes an orchestra tour and he wants to put out a full album of a capella groups singing his songs. he sounded serious about that.

re: bff, he confirmed it's a one night thing, no plans to make it bigger. he brought up how none of the three of them were ever in it for the money and they have their integrity, etc. He then said that the only way there'd be a full tour is if they did an album and no one in the group is too eager to do that, so - this week and that's it.

Hell yea, I kinda wish I hadn't listened to the Frown song though, it was supposed to a pleasant surprise for me when I bought the album. Can't take it back now though.

I know this is a double post, but I've got to proclaim my love for Neil Hannon now.

I just downloaded Victory for the Comic Muse and the whole album is awesome, everyone should go out and buy it right now.

Unless you want a good album, in which case get Liberation, Promenade, or Casanova.

Actually he should get A Secret History, and realize he knows one of the tracks.

I have a soft spot for Die a Virgin. Cause that song just makes me laugh. A lot. Espeically the voice over at the beginning.

Other than that, yeah, get Liberation.
