Domino’s UK reissue of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea has prompted Pitchfork to give it a 10.0 review today.
I particularly like this part of the review:
What the hell? A guy in a rock band saying he was emotionally devastated by a book everyone else in America read for a middle-school assignment? I felt embarrassed for him at first, but then, the more I thought about it and the more I heard the record, I was awed. Mangum’s honesty on this point, translated directly to his music, turned out to be a source of great power.
(Thanks to Allison in Chicago for alerting me to this.)
And it’s just over a month until we publish Kim Cooper’s book about the album…
