I would guess so. But itís a momentum killer. And it would be nice if that spot had some variety.

I can’t see listening to CT in its entirety ever again. It’s just so musically light on interesting content. The start to the album is so atrocious - no cohesion at all. Feels like an unfinished hatchet job.

Hate isn't the right word, I just find it very boring. But for some reason I really like When I'm Weary, so who knows.

If they'd actually perform it like it is on the album, you might think differently. I don't understand why they don't give it a try.

Between IOY, Virginia, and Do You Remember, I have a hard time picking my favorite track.

At least that's a sign of a halfway decent record. However, it's pretty hard to climb the rankings. Although I will say there is a massive gap between Come Tomorrow and Everyday (which I really dislike and is getting worse with age).

Before These Crowded Streets
Under The Table and Dreaming
Crash
Lillywhite Sessions
Some Devil
Busted Stuff
Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King
Away From The World
Come Tomorrow
Everyday
Stand Up

How'd they do that with no orchestra strings?

Buddy could simulate a lot on the keys. They havenít really tried it FULL FULL band. There are plenty of ways they could fill up the sound.

Turn Stefan up, have Buddy and Carter harmonize a bit. Throw in some soft horns. All Iím saying is they havenít even tried.

I don't hate it but it's a filler song to me for sure. It's boring, and equivalent to stuff like Belly Full, Sweet, Sister, Butterfly, etc. It's just kind of there and it has 0 business being played at a DMB show. Dave solo or D+T it's ok, but it's just not a song you want to hear at a full band show ever. It's very blah. Nothing overly cringey or bad about it, but nothing exciting either.

Songs like that need to have really great lyrics for me to really like and enjoy them. Here On out's lyrics are average to mediocre at best, nothing that poetic or thoughtful in it for me.
