Over the course of three albums in nearly a decade's time, the Books have grown to become one of modern music's most genuine innovators. Creatively complex and truly unclassifiable, The Way Out continues the Books' tradition of meticulous, existential songcraft, infusing the playfully surreal elements of previous albums with a humorous, childlike excitement. Produced and recorded as always in the Books' home studios, The Way Out expands on the charm and intimacy of past endeavors with a deeper emotional resonance and an ever-impressive marriage of seemingly disparate sound worlds. With The Way Out, the Books have mastered the precarious balance of beauty, absurdity and accessibility. The CD version comes with a large 10x20-inch full-color foldout poster. The deluxe 2xLP format comes packaged with 36 full-color die-cut stickers for you to design and decorate your own unique record cover!
