#23 of 2008: Joan of Arc - Boo Human

Thirty-Two Words: Joan of Arc doesn't make accessible albums. This band makes albums that challenge and evolve over time. Joan of Arc accomplishes this better than any album since the Owls' release in 2001.

The Moment of Truth: At 3:03 of the fifth track, Tim Kinsella somehow works in the phrase "a tell-tale penis" into a prog-like, folky love song. Of course, "A Tell-Tale Penis" also happens to be the track's title.

Killer to Filler Ratio: 7:7 (today)
