That's a tricky question. I think Strange Mercy is pretty universally regarded as her best album. So, maybe start with that one? But if you really want more stuff like Slow Disco, I'd say start with her first record, Marry Me.

Thanks! I'll check it out.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Let us know what you think. I'll be excited to hear your thoughts.

Yessir. And my vinyl copy has shipped. I probably won't have it tomorrow, though.

Listened to the new today in the train and it got me really hooked...i think it does a wonderful job of showcasing Annie´s talents as a singer. She really reaches for new levels here, because the music is so stripped that its the main instrument i would say.
Songs like Pills, Slow Disco and Los Ageless are wonderful were others might be a little dull maybe...but overall its a wonderful addition to an already amazing album.

Listen to it now Joe! I thought we would be discussing this one today.

Second listen right now and yes, this one really showcases her strength as a vocalist. He really reaches new levels.

Pills, Masseduction, Slow Dance, Los Ageless, Fear The Future, Smoking Section and HBJ are my current favorites.

Its impressive how good these songs are.
They work within the ¨pop¨ arrangements and in this piano setting too. And she is quite the performer.

Totally. I'm kinda blown away by how good the songs are on Masseduction. Their arrangements and details really reveal themselves over time. I'm sure it's only enhanced by MassEducation. I can't wait to dive into these.

ANNIE CLARK IS A GODDAMN GENIUS

This is really good, but when I want to hear these songs I'll probably just reach for the original.

Nah. Original release is way better.

I was a little let down by it. There are some really incredible moments but i REALLY love the full arrangements. I'm a little piano'd out by the end.

I was similarly let down by Jim James recent release of his similar stripped down version of his latest album.
