Description

God’s Favorite Customer reveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. From “Mr. Tillman,” where he trains his lens on his own misadventure, to the cavernous pain of estrangement in “Please Don’t Die,” Tillman plays with perspective throughout to alternatingly hilarious and devastating effect.  “We’re Only People (And There’s Not Much Anyone Can Do About That)” is a meditation on our inner lives and the limitations we experience in our attempts to give and receive love. It stands in solidarity with the title track, which examines the ironic relationship between forgiveness and sin. Together, these are songs that demand to know either real love or what comes after, and as the album progresses, that entreaty leads to discovering the latter’s true stakes.

    I didn’t immediately fall in love with this album but it quickly grew on me. I enjoy listening on vinyl. It’s become one of those records I put on during rainy day with a glass of whisky and just relax. It’s odd that many people loved all his work up until this album. Me, on the other hand, did not actually enjoy his work UNTIL this album came out. I think it’s by far his best yet. My favorites on here are “Please Don’t Die” and “Mr. Tilman”. The vinyl also sounds great!
