4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging Listen, but brilliant March 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
For those who are expecting another How Memory Works or Live in Chicago, hold your horses. Joan of Arc has grown up. Just like previous albums, Joan of Arc's So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness is a fantastic psychedelic brain trip that challenges the ideas of rhythm, melody, and coherence. But the similarities stop there. Quite simply, Joan of Arc has put out thier rock album. Upon first listen I hated this record. However I usually find that the hard to listen to records usually become my favorites after repeated listens. There is something both disturbing and soothing about Joan of Arc's seemingly random guitar meanderings, subtle beats and Tim Kinsella's neurotic, yet buttery voice. Once you allow your brain to accept the experimental nature of the music you begin to hear how brilliant it really is. It is not at all random, but a well orchestrated, complicated masterpiece that truly defies genre. It's like listening to Sonic Youth if they were really into new Radiohead with Nick Drake as the mouthpiece. For those of you who REALLY appreciate music for music's sake, or old Joan of Arc fans, challenge yourself by trying this album out and see if it doesn't grow on you. I give this CD a 4/5 for originality, and better listenability than most of thier previous albums. Great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Normalating from the Deviation Feb. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
At first listen you may be wishing that you could harken back to the Joan of Arc of 1999, and erase this memory from your head, but after repeated listenings this CD becomes something that embeds in your psyche. A bit more melodic and calm that prior releases, it does a nice job at making workable lyrics...and throws in the occasional chorus or two. Tracks 2, 6, and 11 are the highlights, melding beautiful spoken word elements on 11. Shell out the big bucks and add this to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different Joan of Arc Nov. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is Joan of Arc but so different from their other albums. I really enjoyed the first four albums especially the middle three as for this, this is very different. Tim is singing more in tune, he's creating melodies, his lyrics make more sense, the album is actually structures into songs. . .in otherwords, it's all wrong. If you never liked Joan of Arc to begin with you'll like this, if you've liked Joan of Arc a lot this'll be somewhat of a dissapointment, get In Rape Fantasy & Terror Sex We Trust instead.
