My friend Zach thought it was a good idea. (He also thought I should just put the album up for free download here and call it a day, but I've spent a wad of dough on making this album -- and I also fetishize musical objects like CD's and records -- so there will be CD's, and they will be for sale.)
A blog, however, can be a much better experience than just a context-free CD. It can be an interactive, participatory experience (i.e., you can leave eloquent comments). You can add a lot of links and doodads, like this. A blog can give you a real narrative of the album, and I don't mean like the explanation of what the fuck The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is supposed to be about.
