Alexander Peterhans A beautiful collection of songs, carefully constructed out of meticulously manipulated and edited live guitar and cello, and a huge library of exquisite samples. All of The Books' work is fantastic, but this feels like their most consistent and cohesive album. An absolute stonecold classic. Favorite track: A True Story of a Story of True Love.

about

Following up their hugely acclaimed debut, Thought For Food, The Lemon of Pink was the album that cemented the Books as a pioneering musical force. It would become their biggest-selling album (a feat usurped only by the recently released The Way Out), and still stands as perhaps the most beloved album in the Books' unfailingly brilliant catalog. As with the recently reissued Thought For Food, The Lemon of Pink is repackaged with dazzling new artwork and expanded to include lyrics for every song for the first time ever. Carefully and thoughtfully remastered from the original mixes by Zammuto at his new studio outside his home in Vermont, The Lemon of Pink now boasts a warmth and clarity that surprisingly reveals an increased harmonic depth.
