Having CT and DG as two options is a False Choice. I can't listen to either one.

Come On Come On isn't perfect, but I like the musical direction and it has an atmosphere to it I kinda dig.

This is like Arcade Fire's Everything Now, once I make a playlist and drop all of the mindbogglingly terrible songs its pretty good.

I think the toughest part here is knowing there are songs that exist that are better than some of what ended up on the album. Also, songs that don't make albums have been banished in the past... would be sad to see that happen to Bismark.

agree

I still don't get all the hate for the song Come Tomorrow. Lyrically its pretty bad I agree with that. Musically its not that bad. Surely more enjoyable than Dream Girl, Steady as we Go, Stolen Away, Old Dirt Hill.

I actually think it might be "and if course if I was already there I'd dig my way back home"

It is an epic double down on cheese... it must have been written in Wisconsin

Pretty bad lyrically, not bad musically, not as bad as some of their absolute worst tunes. Those aren't exactly high standards for it, seems pretty easy to see why people would hate on it imo.

I agree. I was referencing the performance Dave did with that orchestra, though. See if I can dig up the video.

Yes, you do need Amazon unlimited. They added commentary for She, DYR, CT, and VITR. Nothing earthshattering, it's mostly the same stuff he said during the Sirius thing.

I get it, but hate is pretty strong. I don't know if I can honestly say I hate any of the songs, but I dislike some of them. Oh well, to each their own.
