I would like to know what you mean by “overproduce”.
I can understand not liking the new songs as much as the older ones but I think the amount of downright hatred towards this album/the EPs is extraordinary and kind of uncalled for. A guy who works at a record store near me hated it and said “there weren’t any riffs on it”. Were we listening to the same album? Hmm.
On a whim I searched for it last night on iTunes and picked up the song. I liked it a lot. That album cover, though…yeesh.
This minute long preview already makes up for the entire “The Only Place” album in my book.
This is just wonderful.
Wesley makes a good point: what if this album has the greatest music of their career and it’s blanketed by this fucking terrifyingly bad album cover. We just don’t know. I wouldn’t put it past YYY to pull something like that.
I like it.
The list is pretty good and well researched, except I would switch 1 and 2 around. “Tallahassee” is a masterpiece.
“Dr. Dee” is on this and not “Mr. M”. Something’s wrong here.
I was kind of disappointed with “Tomorrow Morning” (it’s weird to hear E sing about being happy), but this album, sonically, seems to be the perfect middle ground between albums like “Hombre Lobo” and “Tomorrow Morning”. Really can’t wait for the new album.
