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.
