I've been listening to Middle Cyclone over and over. I agree it's fantastic. Interesting that you initially thought it was "too long and too slow": the 30-minute non-song at the end aside, it's only 42 minutes long (i.e., the length an album should be, generally speaking). Anyway, I was having the opposite problem; with my early listens it went by so fast (but pleasantly) that I couldn't zero in on the lyrics till several times through.

Also, I'm glad you mentioned the Josh Ritter cd. I received that for Christmas, and it got lost in a stack of stuff on top of the tv. I opened it last night, admittedly uncertain about it. I look forward to checking listening to it soon.

Yeah, it's actually not a long record. I think it had more to do with what seemed like a singular tone or mood to many of the songs. That feeling wore off quickly though. Now I find that it races by, and I'm ready to just start it over as soon as it begins.

Neko's not doing it for me this time around. I'm not quite ready to give up yet, since I enjoyed Fox Confessor so much (and stil do). Your vote of confidence will get me to give it another go.

This is an admirable work! Thanks for compiling these best albums from different months. Keep it up!
