No worries about this being a situation where you should just pop onto iTunes or whatever other online retailer you prefer so you can download the album's one or two "hits" and save yourself the expense of buying the whole album. No, this is not a collection of songs but a true and proper album, and it really shows in the listening.
As I hacked and wheezed and generally wished for death in the midst of the flu, I must have listened to Showroom of Compassion back to back at least five times per day, now that I think about it.
Truth be told, I was listening to it again while writing this. Didn't plan on this being solely about Cake but it turned out that way. I'm planning to do a proper review of what I've been listening to and had thought this was only going to be a general "I'm still alive" kind of column.
Oh well. I am still alive, at least, even if a tad bit wordy.
