This album exists. After 22 years, one of the most revered albums of all time has a follow-up. The mere fact of it is a miracle. The album itself? Ten months later, we’re still unpacking it — the undulant waves are a little sharper at the edges, the buckling-girder note-bends more stomach-dropping. It’s darker, less sweet. But it is deep, and rich and mysterious, ending one of the great lost genius stories of the ’90s on a triumphant note. Miracles upon miracles.
