5 stars I got mine yesterday..a grey and rainy evening. Now, I had taken all of these tremedous reviews trickling in since October about how incredible this album was with an extra large grain of salt. I mean, come on now, best album so far of the 21st century?? These church fans probably are like myself and would think steve kilbey burping into a microphone would sound great. So I set the bar low and tried to prepare myself for initial disappointment. There is no way it could live up to these reviews and also having to be the follow up album to AENT?

AND...and....holy crap this album is amazing. Unlike any other Church CD, this one had me at hello. No further listening was required for my assesment that it was amazing - just one listen. As I drove along with the music blaring, for the first time ever while listening to a new Church CD, I had an urge to press the replay button before hearing the next song. That's how much the songs grabbed a hold of me. I really can not fathom how they could have made an album so different, so good, yet still the Church at this point in their career. I am simply blown away. Highlights: Telepath, Theatre and Its Double, Telepath, and June
