465 IT WAS THREE DISCS!

This is another long one that held me up. The Magnetic Fields, ’69 Love Songs’ (Merge 1999) is three discs long and just what it says it is: 69 love songs. All kinds of different lengths and sounds but over all I didn’t care for it. It reminded me of something that came from the ‘70s and, maybe, even another band but I couldn’t put my finger on it and halfway through the second disc I just didn’t care and wanted it to be over. Rolling Stone has it and number 465 and thinks I should have cried at least once. I can only see crying over this because it seemed never-ending.
