Best Album Titles From One Letter to Ten

The only thing to do not like regarding the outstanding brand-new album by Fatality Taxicab for Cutie is the title, which is Kintsugi. According to the band’s website, Kintsugi is a sort of Japanese art type that includes repairing busted pottery. Offered the reality that the songs on the cd reflect broken connections and also relationships, the title does appear appropriate.
