Is anyone as surprised as I am by the 7.1 Pitchfork gave 49:00? I’m having a tough time with this record. I enjoy it, especially the utter rawness. However, I am still wondering if it would have generated so much buzz had it not been a 49-cent downloadable album.
Is the marketing overpowering the music? What do you think? How do you Westernerds feel about this being Our Man Paul’s most popular record?
