Was it with you that I discussed this album at length on the old boards?
I listened to it for the first time when someone described it as the worst album they've ever heard, and I found it to be full of embryonic ideas that would later be fleshed out into full songs on her subsequent albums. I think I described it as "a Rosetta Stone for understanding her 21st century work." I'm a twat like that.
If this discussion was with you, then either you've not yet had a chance to revisit it yet, or you have, and it's even worse than you thought.
