Q MagazineMay 22, 2018This is a heady journey through excess, absurdity and 21st century mores from arguably the world's most eloquent singer-songwriter, which seems to take us that bit closer to who he really is. [Jul 2018, p.117]
Jun 5, 2018God’s Favourite Customer leaves the over-wrought and possibly over-thought days of Pure Comedy in its slipstream in return for something just that bit purer. True, the fun days of I Love You, Honeybear et al may be gone, but what a sacrifice if this is what we get in return.

It's a very stripped down record that relies heavily on Father John Misty's amazing voice to make and deliver each track and it works, it really does. He's such an underestimated artist that still has yet to get his due despite a rapidly growing fanbase.… Expand

GFC is a raw album,GFC is nearly as ambitious or striking as John's fantastic Pure Comedy, but it has something that PC lacked; heart. GFC is a raw album, musically and emotionally, especially "Die," "Palace," and "People." These songs are great, with fantastic, honest, heartfelt lyrics, great singing, and some refreshing humor, specifically on "Palace." The lyrics on GFC are heartfelt and raw on a few tracks, but have plenty of John's signature wit on others.
The music is great; it's simple, stripped-back, and fits perfectly with the lyrical tone of the album. The only song that doesn't fully work is the title track, which is a bit boring and runs too long. Despite this misstep, GFC is a great album. It's honest, witty, and heartfelt with great music and vocals. It's an 8.5.… Expand
