Oct 20, 2010Wow. Whatever heartbreak I feel listening to "Everglade" from 'The Crying Light' is crushed into a yawn over this album. It's somehow meandering and disjointed all at once. Every song is one to two stars in iTunes, which is all the more disappointing given that Antony can make really great music.
