Pretty. Odd. (Deluxe Version)
Stylistically this is all miles from their 2005 debut A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out. This time around they toss in a bit of everything, including strings, horn fills, swirling harmonies, even a mock-vaudevillian interlude in “I Have Friends in Holy Places.” To say that Pretty. Odd. is often over the top is as obvious as some of the corny wordplay.
