The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat

This cd runs for around about 75 minutes. By the 30th I was getting a little tired of the psuedo bombast, the 2-3 sections / song arrangements, that same melody line she does on everything they do and, yes, the overt length of each song. It's not as if I'm going to want to interpret the lyrics which fill up the space with some sort of nautical flavour. There very well could be some sort of concept behind it all or it could even be a rock-opera. Neither of these things interest me in the least. But the music has some great chord changes and it's played with such charmed, clunkiness that I'll definitely want to hear it again and again.
