Review

The Magnetic Fields' synth pop-saturated tenth studio album arrives after a trio of more guitar-oriented offerings (I, Distortion, and Realism). Love at the Bottom of the Sea feels like an amalgamation of Stephin Merritt's epic 69 Love Songs and his excellent work under the 6ths moniker, especially on the giddy and typically infectious first single "Andrew in Drag." Merritt can still work his subversive magic, as evidenced by the Ian Curtis-lite "Born for Love," the aforementioned "Drag," and the typically deadpan closer "All She Care About Is Mariachi," the latter of which manages to rhyme "Hibachi" and "Liberace" with famed ad agency "Saatchi & Saatchi." ~ James Christopher Monger
