I just finished listening to it... I'm not sure if I absolutely loved it or thought it was pretty bad.
I love most of the actual songs. The Tragic Events were a nice (doesn't seem like the right word somehow.. haha) touch, but I felt they maybe went on a bit too long. 20 minutes out of a 55 minute album was just speech. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, cos I really did. I just felt like I was listening more to an Evelyn Evelyn musical than a CD. Like, they were going through, a bit of speech, then songs, then more story, then songs etc. I think the reason it feels a bit weird is cos I wasn't expecting it. I was just expecting to listen to a CD of music.
Also, I think people on here hyped Chicken Man up too much. I've only listened once, but it seems a little bland at the moment.
Other than that, I really did enjoy the album. Or at least I think I will once I listen a few more times knowing what I'm actually listening to.
Also, when I put it on iTunes, track 3 came up as The Magic EVents of September... hahaha.
