Richey Shines On

Richey really was a genius, and this record is a fitting tribute to him as a still-present-in-spirit fourth member of the band. Richey always brought a dark but sharp intellect conceptually and lyrically, and the music here follows suit. "Virginia State..." is my favorite track, but "Pretension/Repulsion," "All is Vanity," "She Bathed Herself," "Jackie Collins" all rate as some of the best songs in the band's career, each mirroring important moments in the group's history. I am so thankful to the guys for making this record.

Best Ever?

Favorite Tracks: Jackie Collins Existential Question Time (what a great song title, too), All Is Vanity and Marlon JD
