Just received the Ale-colored vinyl. I knew this album was going to be good, but it’s even better than that. Everything on this release, from the track list placement, the detail of liner notes and the way the songs are arranged seems to dovetail in a perfect harmony.. as if it were ordained. My first listening experience was fresh and invigorating and, like a fine barrel-aged Stout, will only deepen and mature with each listening. Album of the year!
