Most likely thatís already the case with this new album anyway not sure why people are expecting songs theyíve never heard to be on it.

This

His artistic ability is not good, at least not my cup of tea.

I've seen better artwork on 80's hair band album covers

I think the Big Whiskey cover art is amazing.

BW was cool. I hated the AFTW one, and not just because they used the same color scheme. Comparatively it was nowhere even close to as good.

It's so immersive and enhances the listening experience because of all of the lyrical references scattered across the scene.

I like the concept of the AFTW art - it illustrates how many of us have isolated ourselves from others around us, yet we live so close to each other (if you live in a city) stacked up in boxes. But it feels more like individual artwork for The Riff instead of full album artwork for the entire album.

The amount of work that went into that Super Deluxe package is crazy.

I mean, most of us here can't play violin does that mean we can't point out how shitty BT got the last decade (probably closer to 20 years)?

I don't see any issue with being critical about something that you are physically incapable of doing yourself.

Absolutely. There’s no “you tried” award, not everyone has to like everything.

I guess you won't be critiquing the album then.

I won’t be saying dave doesnt have ability to sing or play guitar. Not liking something is different. Maybe it was a little harsh, but I think it’s pretty clear he has ability, regardless if you like it or not....

I agree. And this shouldn't even be a discussion. Wowy.

I don’t know, the fact they’re taking so long and bringing folks back in, rumors of guests, etc makes me hopeful they are really putting a lot of effort into this album. Hopefully it surprises us with great unheard songs like AFTW did. And the ones we’ve heard already I really do like, except for the lyrics on Be Yourself.

Bismarck sucks. Verbal diarrhea. Just skipped to a part, tried to sort through the 400 words Dave awkwardly "sang" within 7 seconds, and stopped. Is this the DMB you guys like?

Bismarck is a fine song. I don't find it overly wordy such that they feel shoe-horned in. It has a good chorus and Rashawn has his arms at his sides looking at a holstered trumpet. Might be about as good as 4.0 gets.
