I really didn't like it upon my first couple of listens, but at this point I'm willing to say it's got a pretty good chance at being my favorite album of the year, and possibly even better than Sunbather. It's so fucking good.
We were at so many of the same sets! Bummer we never ran into each other. On the contrary to your overall experience, this was my favorite Bumbershoot yet, and I was mostly pleased with the organization. When the schedule came out I wasn't too impressed with the lineup, but I ended up seeing some really great stuff over the weekend. Already excited for next year!
