This morning I was thinking about the normalizer, a tool that converts your charts from track count to play time. For example, if I listen to a Godspeed You! Black Emperor record every day for a week, that will probably rack up 21 tracks. If I listen to this His Name Is Alive record once, that racks up 28 tracks. In real time, I spent 7 hours listening to GY!BE and barely an hour listening to HNIA, so which chart is right?

ANYWAY, this is pretty far from my favorite HNIA album [that would be Mouth by Mouth], and each of their records is pretty radically different from the next. This one? Oh, it only falls into GothPop, if there is such a thing.
