3/14: Just wanted to show the cover of the new Stephin Merritt,
released today. Bought tonight if it's in stock in the store on the way home.

3/14: First listen: Better have a second.

3/15: Second listen: Remind myself I abhor show music.

3/15, 3/16: Third, fourth, fifth listens: Ba'al, it's dreadful. Or rather, it's dreadful for me. The lyrics are brilliant, but each listen, the music gets worse. Merritt has earned too much credit with me for me to blame him. This one's on me.
