Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs


Recommended Posts

Been meaning to check out The Magnetic Fields for ages and yesterday happened to come across a copy of 69 Love Songs for £8.99 in HMV. 'Bargain' I thought.

This record seems virtaully perfect. A concept album with endless emoptional depth. This is the longest album I've ever heard of yet it manages to sustain interest and passion through to the end. My only complaint? It's so long that before you're anywhere near the end you're already desperate to hear some of the earlier songs again.

I need to go and carry on listening, but thought I would see what other people think of this album? Favourite tracks? Anything similar worth checking out?

Utterly fantastic and depressing indie jingles. The thing for you if you like Silver Jews / Stuart Staples et al.

Papa Was A Rodeo is one of my favourite songs ever and Lali Puna did an equally amazing cover of it.
