just saw him open a Delta Spirit show in Detroit, and he (and his band) were fantastic. like a 60's Brit-pop Joy Division, if that makes any sense at all.

"synth-throb"? it bothers me that folks lazily assume that DM always = synth-pop and that this Marr cover is some radical reinterpretation of the original. go listen to the original - this is actually a rather faithful (no pun intended) cover of the bluesy Brit-rock song DM recorded in '93.

this is amazing. love it. if you hadn't told me what it was, i might have guessed it was a Martin Gore demo, esp. with those melodies that arrive at 2:32

thanks for clarifying this memory for me! Carl's line about that riff being played at sporting events brought up a vague memory, but now i absolutely remember the Blue Jackets skating out to it, and yes, it did always rule!

disagree on Run2me! i just listened to it at quite a loud volume and it made me happy. but then i like the things it's referencing. totally agree on the "strange lovers" meme that permeates the record. i totally get Michael's point about how they could be placeholder lyrics. lorem ipsum.

agree. i'm listening now and Tommy is throwing a lot of the same punches as Jimmy used to, but he's got that Tommy Lee hard-rock swagger to Jimmy's jazz chops.

just listened to the stream. if someone had told me 20 years ago that Billy would make a Cars/Cheap Trick record with the drummer from Motley Crüe, i would have told them they were insane. but somehow, in 2014, it works.

we must be listening to different streams then, because i got at least three 30-second amex commercials inserted between songs.

i love Anton Corbijn's work in general, and have always admired his concert film work for DM - clean, simple shots; a great sense of space and scale; and he always keeps his cuts mellow and returns to the wide shot so your eyes don't get lost. DM always has some of the most unique and arresting video design incorporated into their live shows and this contortionists-shot-from-below thing is amazing. i'm assuming that is also Anton's work, but i'm not sure...

just saw this on the Guardian, too. this has been common knowledge for a very long time. no idea why it's suddenly being treated as breaking news.

just as i suspected: IMO, the two "bonus" tracks are better than anything else on the album. i would love an entire album that sounded like "The Crystal Ballroom".

Koz challenging anyone to "have a sense of humor" is the funniest thing i've heard in a long long time. i'm going to go listen to 'Grace Cathedral Park' and try to forget everything i've learned about this man's personality in the past few days.
