WYTTSY is great. Not my favorite of theirs, and a little samey, but a record I still love quite a bit.

All of their albums are about even for me, except for Futures, which is considerably stronger than everything else.

Nah, "Back Home" is better than Southern Air. Southern Air is their best album though.

I've never spent enough time with River of Dreams. Usually when I'm in a Joel mood it's The Stranger or Turnstiles or 52nd Street.

I'm not a big fan of "Life of a Salesman," "View from Heaven," "Twenty Three," or "Inside Out." Everything else on here is great, though. "Back Home" remains their best song.

"Lullabye" is a top 10 Billy Joel song for me.

Stapleton, the new Isbell, A Thousand Horses, and honeyhoney.

Not sure if you'd like A Thousand Horses. They're bit more mainstream than Cobb's usual wheelhouse, but also very grounded in southern...

Yeah, I figured this wouldn't be a big hit for you, but cool that you checked it out. I actually like their follow-up, The Harsh Light of Day, a little bit more. It's a purer power pop album where...

He said that it'll probably come out on or around the 10-year anniversary, which is August 23rd. So I bet we get pre-order info within the month.

Same. This is the fifth record he's done this year that I've really enjoyed.



Haha, this is the one where I got to it and was just like, "Okay, I love this." Thanks for the rec!

Ha, well Billy Walsh is my uncle, so I'm not surprised by that one. Great singer/songwriter, though. He's got this incredible Irish tenor voice that I think you'd appreciate. Let me know if you have...

Star Slight has got this: this record is way better than Human Again, and the songs from this album are way better live.

I think I like the more rigid themes, personally, but a mixtape version would be cool too.

I gave it an 8. Still a great summer album, but I think they've topped it a few times. It's stacked with great songs, but it also has a few clunkers.

Interesting. I have very little concept of which songs people like best on Fearless, but "Breathe" is just so gorgeous and effortless.

I think we all listed our favorite TDS songs like three months ago, but that might have been in the general forum thread.

Yeah, I was at a major crossroads in my life when War Paint came out, and I played the shit out of that album that summer.
