Belle & Sebastian: If You're Feeling Sinister

I've owned this album for a while (i.e. years) but have only gotten in a few listens of it (mostly through shuffle play). It kept being on 'greatest album' lists, and people recommended it a lot, and I guess on a mix cd I got there was one B&S track from a different album.

So, here's my take: this is one of those rare albums where I like a few songs, but the other ones never grow on me to the point where I don't compulsively skip them. I like: Seeing Other People, Like Dylan in the Movies, and Mayfly (even if it mostly sounds like Dylan in the Movies); and I like parts of If You're Feeling Sinister.

So, in conclusion: it's ok it's in my collection, but I'm not gonna buy any more.

My sheep quotient: 33%
