So, I know that this cover is quite a departure from the actual album cover, which wasn't that bad to begin with. It's just that there was a lot of artwork that I wanted to play with, and try and capture a new feel for the album, while still keeping it's essence. Does that make sense? Regardless, I preferred these pictures (and some of the single sleeves) to the album, so I tried this one out. If you don't like it, you don't have to use it.
As for the album, a stellar sophomore release after some astounding EPs and a mini album. They weren't kids just fooling around anymore. Spooky picks up right where Scar left off, a little more polished, a little less naive, but no less idealistic. One wonderful track after another, this one always pleases.
The b-sides and mixes aren't bad, a nice addition to an already perfect set, just a little more Miki to listen to. Oh, Miki, I was so hot for her. Between her, Toni Halliday and Harriet Wheeler I was in heaven. Just thinking of them makes my heart go a flutter.
By the way, you must listen to this loudly.
