Vinyl love: Frightened Rabbit “Painting of a panic attack”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Frightened Rabbit
Album Title: Painting of a panic attack
Year released: 2016
Details: Gatefold

The skinny: News for those of you now sick of seeing Frightened Rabbit gracing these pages this week: this post should wrap things up for now. And for those of you revelling in it all, a bonus post for you here. I normally do only one of these “Vinyl love” things each weekend but after yesterday’s spin, it felt a bit more-ish. “Painting of a panic attack” is Frightened Rabbit’s fifth and final album, and really, not a bad one to finish off with. Great guitar heavy and textured tunes with Scott Hutchison’s excellent songwriting and passion-filled delivery. Perhaps someone out there can explain the numerology on the album artwork? Particular the importance of the 618 on the album label?

Standout track: “Woke up hurting”

… and found suggestions that the numbers represent the letters of the alphabet. 618 being 6 + 18. FR.

The other numbers spell Panic and Attack. Apparently.

Ah. Good sleuth work. I thought about googling it while writing the post but then, lost myself in the music again.

Would all 5 of their records be considered Very Good?
I remember a fellow blogger proposing that 5-in-a-row Very Good records was a very difficult task (many have 5 in the discography, but few can go for a streak with no misses)
If these guys did it, well done Frightened Rabbit!
