    Default 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields??

    Its on sale on Amazon, but due to the cost of my tickets for Coachella I am short on money, but I've heard its great!
    Is it really the must-buy that Pitchfork, Robert Christgau, Allmusic, and countless others say it is?

    Anyone have the vinyl set of this? Contemplated picking it up a few times.

    Thanks for the head up on cd-box set. Love this album/s.

    It would have made one really good album if Merritt had any quality control. 25% great,75% filler.

    I think that there's more than 17 good songs on that album.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    I think 69 Love Songs is amazing - there's only 2 or 3 songs out of the whole thing I don't care for.

    Have you heard any other Magnetic Fields albums? Because I don't know if I'd jump right in to that one to start. Stephin Merritt's voice takes a little getting used to. If you've never heard anything by them, I'd recommend listening to Holiday or Charm of the Highway Strip first and then if you like what you hear, go for it.

    Yay! Hopefully it's better than the last two.
