Very tough call between To Bring You My Love and Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea. Haven't heard the latest.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

You better run!"

This - went with To Bring You My Love because of its tribal, bluesy, raw sound.
I probably listen to SFTCSFTS more though - I think it's her most accessible album.
Hey, nice marmot!

To Bring You My Love, Rid of Me, and Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea are all hall of famers. I voted To Bring You My Love.

I keep putting the HOPE VI record off. I don't know if I have the energy to form an opinion.

There's no deceit in the cauliflower.
