This is Magic Hour's finest -- pardon the pun -- hour. The album is filled with great 3-5 minute pop songs (complete with Wayne Rogers' freakout guitar flourishes) and one great 20-minute extended jam that weaves its way and builds up to a breathtaking crescendo. While Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang's free-floating bass and drum work is still reminiscent of Galaxie 500, this album sounds nothing like their former band. Absolutely essential.
