    theBlob516 is right, what a belter Frances the Mute is as a cut. The album was pretty average when compared with De-loused and The Bedlam.

    I was just reading the info for this album. Frances the Mute was excluded off their second album because of time limitations?! If only they cut out the 10+ minutes of bells and near-silence it would have fit perfectly and the album would have been 10x better.

    The Bible and the Breathalyzer intrigues me I think it was a spin off of what happen to the town after the widow music video. I need to figure out what this album is about.

    I didn't get into this until after all the other albums, but now I can't stop listening to it... and yes, I know it's unofficial.

    Who cares if it's fan-made? It's still fucking awesome... [2]

    Is it actually even important whether this album exists or not? The music matters.

    It actually should be an album. But when TMV realised that there where illegal copies on the market before the album was released, they stopped everything and made Frances the Mute instead.

    The Bible and the Breathalyzer was on the L'Via L'Viaquez single. It's basically just a strange narrative with some effects thrown in...
