Stephin Merritt is The Magnetic Fields and boy does he write a lot of songs. I bought the 3rd volume of his recently released 3 CD package, 69 Love Songs, and I plan to buy the other two as soon as I can save up the money. On this album you'll find a wide variety of musical styles from eighties synth pop to baroque,complete with a harpsichord, or a synth made to sound like one. You won't be hearing this stuff in any clubs, in fact Merritt had planned to preform the music in more 'loungy' settings.
If you like GAP ads or yearn for new, less depressing, Joy Division, pick up one or all of these CD's. If not... well I really don't care. I've got better things to do than worry about what crappy music everyones into these days

This is my personal favorite of the three cds. It's the most dark, bizarre and cerebral of the three in my opinion. Vol.1 is the catchiest, but Volume three excels in the lyric department with astounding songs like "The Death of Ferdinand De Saussure", "Love in the Shadows", "Wee Nae Bairn Ye'll me Beget", "Yeah! oh, Yeah!". Opening the cd with the uber-hip song "underwear", this cd establishes itself as the most unique and alluring of the three.

I dipped my toe into the 69 Love Songs set with Vol. 1, which I give 5 stars, then was disappointed with Vol. 2, which I give 3 stars, but the group redeems itself with the last set of songs (I believe it's just the way they sequenced the songs). Anyway, Vol. 3 has consistantly good songs - none are perfect - but they're all good. They skip through a variety of styles, but they are all inventive. My recommendation - get Vol's 1 & 3.

Pretty good end to a great set. Jan. 4 2010
By Michael E. Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lacking the outrageously zany songs or the really deep songs of volumes 1 and 2, volume 3 of 69 Loves Songs should appropriately be the third of the three albums that you buy. But you should still buy it. At least, give it a listen.

While it doesn't have the the songs that stay with you for weeks like "My Only Friend," "Epitaph for My Heart," "Time Enough for Rocking..." "Very Funny," "Abigail..." "All My Little Words," "Book of Love" "Nothing Matters When We're Dancing" and on and on... it also does not have the serious misfires and crap of the first two albums. Note: "Love is Like Jazz," "Punk Love," "How F*ing Romantic."

Give these songs from Volume 3 a listen if you are still on the fence:
Underware
Busby Berkely Dreams
Acoustic Guitar
Wi' Nae Wee Bairn Ye'll Me Beget
Yeah! Oh Yeah!

Silly, sentimental, quirky and sarcastic. Just what you want from the Magnetic Fields.
great songs and gotta love that voice! Jan. 2 2014

Heard these songs as part of a dance performance by Nederlands Dance Theatre recently. I was already a fan of The Magnetic Fields, so this was a treat.

This music is so idiosyncratic, fun, often goofy. "Some of it is just transcendental; some of it is just really dumb." I love the Magnetic Fields tongue in cheek view of love.
