Good news for Failure fans who listened to The Heart is a Monster only once and haven't heard it since:
Despite our initial reaction, it turns out that THIS ALBUM IS ACTUALLY A GROWER.
That means it improves the more you listen to it. As it turns out, about five (or possibly more) of the songs on this thing are actually genuinely really good.
For those who want to hear a couple of the jams in a different setting, here is Failure's KEXP session from earlier this week.
