If you wanted to make an incredibly long album and you figured 100 songs would be too many what would be the next number you'd pick? Anyway, Stephen Merritt did a ridiculous thing and wrote 69 indie pop songs about love and actually managed to pull it off. These are songs that had to be eccentric and endearing, which they are.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 19th February 2015
There really are 69 songs on this album. I assumed it was some sort of joke initially. Anyway, the amount of songs means that the album is jam-packed with Stephin Merritt's melodic deep croon over neatly arranged instrumentation and in parts what I can only describe as chamber-electronics. Merritt he also plays a ridiculous amount of instruments on this album. There are a handful of songs on here that are sung by part-time member Claudia Gonson and to my ears, they are the best. "Sweet Lovin' Man" and "Come Back From San Francisco", in particular. Her voice is reminiscent of Kirsty MacColl. The stand out songs sung by Merritt are "I Don't Want To Get Over You", "I Don't Believe In The Sun" and "All My Little Words". However, there is loads here to get your teeth into.
