I was skeptical about this concept (an autobiography in songs, 50 songs for 50 years), but Stephin Merritt has made it work. Each song is a perfect bit of catchy pop and stands on its own, and the subjects of the songs are abstract enough that it never feels precious or cloying. The knowledge that the songs are inspired by particular points in a life just adds a nice context to the lyrics and music. I think this is probably my favorite Magnetic Fields album since 69 love songs.
