Yeah I'm with you on that last part for sure. And just to clarify I didn't mean that reviewers shouldn't have commented on that pre-release talk, as I agree it's important. I just think Brian should...

Oh yeah I don't think I would PREFER that tracklisting over the current one by any means. I just meant that it would have actually made Brian's pre-album talk more in sync with what the album...

What I just realized is this album is kind of a tale of two sides, when it comes to the "changing up the sound" thing. Like the first half of the record, there's not a single song that I could see...

"Meantime Blues" is one of the best songs about songwriting I've ever heard. "The cold grey sky got the writer's block....okay I have the writers block"

That one's great too. In my book he's the best songwriter out there when it comes to combining humor and sadness all in one line. From that song: "Well I got another girl she looks like you at...

I don't know, I really like Stray Paper. That buildup in the end hits so hard when he finally gets to that "all my love became blood on stray paper" line. And the lyrics of the verses are interesting...

When there's that much snark it makes it clear, or else invalidly implies, that the writer did not come into the album with a fresh mind and has some preconceived dislike for Fallon that he filtered...
