Between the new release and the Pitchfork feature where he discusses his psychological issues, Michael Angelakos is certainly getting a fair amount of publicity (seems young musicians like Angelakos and Frank Ocean are pretty savvy in regards to drumming up publicity, honest or not).
I like the album taken as a whole, but where most good albums have one or two singles that kind of stand out from the rest, I didn't hear any songs that really jumped out from the page. I'm big on synthpop, and no question this was a good synthpop album. Just lacked a memorable tune for me.
