Twin Cinema: notes before listening
speaking of which - this is obviously not really going to be a concept album about film, like it seems like it ought to be. (or maybe it is. knowing carl, it probably wouldn't be especially obvious if it were. if it is, it is already my favorite nps album.) otherwise, all i know is that the title track's opening crackle is not going to have the immediacy or the freshness of "mass romantic" or "electric version." does that mean by definition that the album itself couldn't possibly be as poptastic?
the sad part is i'll most likely know on first listen, how it's going to stack up. some hooks take a minute to dig in, but somehow i still feel like i'll know. okay. here goes.
