    yes yes yes! to all three of you. florid is a good word to describe it. The “epic melancholy,” Condon desires peaks at Gulag and Flying Cup Club, which i agree with Jon, are my favorites. There is something infections about some of the songs on this album– my favorite being “the rip tide, and “payne’s bay.” They’re putting in too much for a band with so much talent– simple might just work the best, as it does in Gulag. I am a huge fan though… so even though it is sugary sweet, i still swoon over Condon’s voice.
