Top Ten of 2012 – Number 5. Father John Misty – Fear Fun

FJM_FEAR_FUN_COVER1

Number five goes to the Uncut album of the year ‘Fear Fun’ by Father John Misty.  Long time followers of The Steinberg Principle will know of my love for J Tillman.  Albums such as ‘A Year in the Kingdom’ are just mind blowing.  I stumbled upon this – his new alter ego – in the Sunday Times and was immediately off to the shops looking for the record.  And it does not disappoint.  A complete departure from his past work this is more flamboyant.  More theatrical.  More upbeat and adventurous.  But, no less brilliant.  I don’t want this to be the end of the J Tillman of old, but I certainly look forward with great eagerness to future Father John Misty records based on this offering.  You can read my review of this record here.
