Customer Reviews


Really good to have a record that makes me excited again. Never been a fan of Shirleys singing, but here songs on this are amazing, some of the MFs best. Quick, GWUTW, Your girlfriends face, Hriible party.

Why are track 1 and 3 switched through on th iTunes version?

Ace as always!

A return to a more electronic sound for the M'Fields here along with the quality songwriting, wit and unusual perspectives that we've come to expect. '69 Love Songs' is probably their defining statement but this is a cracking album all the same. 'Andrew In Drag', 'I've Run Away to Join the Fairies' and 'God Wants us to Wait' are my faveourites at the moment but I'd reccommend buying the whole thing. The last reviewer brought up a good point though; I purachsed the CD of this album (I'm such a dinosaur I know) but on putting it on my Itunes noticed it switched the audio for tracks 1 and 3 around...very confusing but obviously easily solved by re-typing in the titles. Anway, 'Love at the Bottom of the Sea' is a fantastic indie-pop/electro-pop album that you shouldn't be without. Check out Casiotone for the Painfully Alone if you enjoy the Magnetic Fields in their more electronic moods...x

The Magnetic Fields may be a bona fide band, but in most essential respects they are the project of studio wunderkind Stephin Merritt, who writes, produces, and (generally) sings all of the material. Merritt also plays many of the instruments, concocting a sort of indie pop-synth rock. While the Magnetic Fields' albums draw upon the electronic textures of vintage acts like ABBA, Kraftwerk, Roxy Music with Eno, Joy Division, and Gary Numan, Merritt's vision is far more pointed toward the alternative...
