its like the perfect example for books who sound like what they are about. again: stunning piece of art.

and somehow I think it sounds like it looks: white, bright, sunny and at the same time dark.

check my post in a previous page, do the "images" I describe work for you?
I'm serious about this.

I totally feel what you are meaning with this picture, buuut the picture itself does look a little bit too...warm?!
the white picture with the bitmapped/pixelated face I so much adore from you, looks like NYG&F sounds!!!!!

its a mixture of these kind of pics with a lot of plain white and pictures of the sky/clouds where the sunlight is breaking through. I agree with you description!
I hope you get what I am trying to say

I don't know. I think Mr. Bungle's self-titled has NYCG&F beat on that level.

YES!
I wanted a more "algid" one but couldn't find it. less saturated colours and a kinda less "busy" image would have worked better.
let's do our secret handshake to celebrate our common imagery semantics!

Ha, I was just about to post about this being my favorite album at the moment.

Free City Rhymes is the only song that I could do without. I don't dislike it; I'm just not usually feeling it.

I hate to be redundant, but the title track is the best. The freakin' climax almost makes me climax, if you catch my drift. And I think you do.

NYC Ghosts & Flowers are for those who just want to listen to something refreshing and different.

And that's exactly why this album rocks.

i like the argument that NYCG&F is a nice transition from ATL to Murray Street. We should all pause and think about presence, place and poetry. Wherever we are.

Just tried the site it said "file not found". What a shame as I am one of those who loves this album. Right from the get go. The last few minutes of the title song are the best interwoven guitar riffs the two of them have ever produced imo.
