Of all the exciting new album streams around these parts lately, I'm not sure I can pretend any had me as excited as what is currently gracing the interwebs courtesy of NPR in the form of the cast recording for The Book Of Mormon from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q's Robert Lopez. From all accounts the real thing is as great as you would expect if you have a working sense of humor, but this is the first time anyone that hasn't visited New York in 2011 has had a chance to hear some of the tunes. As a surprise to absolutely nobody they're amazing. Since a run through the album gives a good semblance of plot I don't want to talk too much about it, but I'd strongly recommend a listen or ten for fans.
As of now "Just like Jesus I'm growing a pair" may be might favorite line, but it certainly was not an easy decision. The album will see a digital release on May 17th and a physical release on June 7th. That's what she said.
