REVIEW: Love At The Bottom Of The Sea - The Magnetic Fields

One might that think that 69 love songs would be enough for one band to write and record, but The Magnetic Fields’ latest album, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, shows us that songwriter Stephin Merritt has at least another fifteen love songs to bring forth. In fact, this latest album feels like an addendum to the 1999's 69 Love Songs. For those unfamiliar with the album, it is just as its title describes—69 back-to-back tracks about love. But it’s not full of your usual sappy, straightforward, heteronormative love songs. 69 Love Songs and now Love at the Bottom of the Sea explore love from many angles, in all its glorious (and not so glorious) permutations.
