    You are still hyping this record? You really are obsessed.

    It is pretty good, though.

    I've only heard it when in your car, but I dig it. Probably not something I would listen to on a regular basis though.

    I think it's awesome. I should try and get it on vinyl, just found the soundtrack to Tinto Brass' Nercosubianco on vinyl yesterday.

    I bought it, and listen to it from time to time. I thought it was one of the best 10 releases of the year last year.

    Yup. To the point where I've tracked down and downloaded 3 or 4 live audio performances and two videos. They're rad cause they've got a few tracks that aren't on the album.

    Over and above the great music, it also has a great case. I love the ultra-technicolor die-cut card sleeve. I'm a sucker for awesome packaging.

    It IS musically awesome, and Patton is amazing on it, but it's a little TOO "Patton"-y for me to completely embrace it. It's not that I don't believe his sincerity in loving these pieces (and his taste is exemplary, from Sparks to Gainsbourg to Morricone), but there's that little bit of irony in his delivery that always chafes me.

    Not to be a downer!

    I think it's okay to have a little bit of irony in this case though. Some of the originals aren't meant to be taken super seriously anyway - Deep Down being a prime example.

    Nola's voice is sexier to me. That goes a long way!
