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.
Very frustrated that I haven’t seen either Lambchop’s “Mr. M” and/or Matthew E. White’s “Big Inner” on any lists so far. Both of those albums are incredible.
