Hahahaha, wow, really? I mean, each to their own...
Frank, which album of yours would you currently consider to be your best work (aside from the one you're working on)? I know around the time of the release of Tape Deck Heart you said your best album was TDH, followed by England, but I also know artists tend to talk up their current release so might change their minds as time goes by.
Nigh on impossible question to answer. I think everyone is inclined to be excited about the thing they're working on - if I wasn't, we wouldn't be heading into the studio, we'd be working on it more. Beyond that, I guess I think the following:
- Sleep: naive, has it's charm, overly long
- LIS: proud of this one. It has a weird coherence to it that I can't quite explain. Still a little innocent, but in a good way
- POTD: wish I'd taken more time on this one, there's a lot of good on it, but I feel like I rushed the record, some of the ideas got buried
- England: proud of this one too, though I made a duff choice about tracklisting (swap balthazar for nights become days please); favourite production by far
- TDH: too close in time and in emotion tojudge right now; has its moments, got a little run into the ground in the studio i think
- next record: best thing eve, naturallt. ha.
Shows? All of em.
