Ok after seeing this guy in 2000 open for Tortoise I absolutely had to pick up this new album. This album has a range of accordian, vibes, drums, piano, bells and odd vocals all coming from the 1 lonesome organist himself. A brilliant combination of ideas, craziness and an almost classical feel throughout. This is an album to be appreciated not only for musical creativity but for the fact that the guy plays all the instruments himself!! superb disc

I recently saw the lonesome organist live and was very impressed, so I picked this album up at my work. I felt compelled to review this and raise the average customer rating. Seeing this live might give a person more respect for the music, but I think it stands on it's own, having some sweet sounds on here for just about everyone. I'm looking forward to checking out his previous releases.

I thought this was going to be much more unusual and eclectic than it ended up being. The songs are bland, repetative and go nowhere. I read in a review that this album was unique because it mixed strange carnival like music with ragtime, barrelhouse, classical riffs, bells, chimes and hauntingly weird vocals. Yeah right. It's all dreadfully boring uninspired weirdness that isn't remotely engaging. I thought these pieces would at least convey some sort of moody and strange atmosphere that I thought was suggested by the review and the odd cover and song titles. But the melodies are not melodies, and it sounds amateurish- like a kid who walks up to a piano and plays the same five notes over and over because he doesn't know anything about piano. Even the flip book which comes with the cd is a dissapointment.
