Nice. I was going to download it simply from The Onion's review, but I knew there were a number of B&S fans here so I thought I would throw it out there.

"We Are the Sleepyheads" is probably my favorite...when i first heard "Suki in the Graveyard" or "the Blues are still blue" ..i had a hard time believing it was Belle and Sebastian...i guess that's a good sign? good album though

Thanks to those who offered thoughts on the album. I picked it up and it certainly met my expectations out of the gate. I have only been through it twice...can't wait to dive back in after work.

i really like this as well. i don't see why Silly Little Frog couldn't be a hit like that Fastball song was a few years back.

this is my introduction to B&S, so where do i go from here?

friday night at the nokia theatre.

excellent!  the new pornographers were good, belle & sebastian was amazing.  some guys who callled themselves "Matter of Trust" (...) did a hilarious cover of the billy joel song of the same name... good stuff.  the venue was fucking sweet but really hot and the douche bags who like to squeeze their way in front of you while they pretend they have friends up front or are just straight-up assholes (like tonight's were) don't like to take showers.  whatever. 

two people fainted! yay!

no Like Dylan in the Movies for us -- i really wanted to hear it -- but their set was.... immaculate.

HOWEVER...

broken social scene > belle & sebastian.

i didn't get like dylan in the movies, either, but otherwise the setlist was top notch.  they opened with what i wanted them to (stars of track and field) and closed with what i wanted em to (judy).  they're damn good.
