This track as well as the whole album is popping up on year end lists all over the place for a reason. Bartees Strange has made no less than a masterpiece of a debut album and Boomer is the crown jewel of it all. The tune is all over the place masquerading in new clothes every other bar yet feeling perfectly coherent. Not since Bohemian Rhapsody has a tune this effortlessly blended genres, themes, moods and styles.
