I'll be honest: I bought this and On the Essence of the Indomitable Spirit album by accident. I was thinking about getting them and had them in my cart, then bought something else and The Deer came through, too. I've really enjoyed An Argument for Observation, but for me, these two albums aren't as enjoyable. They're darn good but I probably wouldn't have bought them. Nevertheless, I believe in supporting artists and I'm happy to channel some funds their way on the strength of their catalog.
