Magnetic Fields'second Nonesuch release features the brilliant melodies and wry lyrics that band leader Stephin Merritt has long been praised for, but, as the album title suggests, he serves them up with a twist. As producer, Merritt takes a completely novel approach to his deployment of feedback, going well beyond fuzzed-out guitar to incorporate cello, piano and accordion into his mad-scientist mix.
