Handwritten, Here Comes My Man, Biloxi Parish, Mae, and National Anthem are my favorites on the album right now. The rest are so good though that the list could change again with each listen.

He can write about whatever he wants, don't get me wrong, but I don't have to like it. It annoys me. That's all I'm saying. Its a real shame too because the parts of the song that aren't about how awesome it is that everything in the album is handwritten are pretty good.

I still don't think you fully understand what the song is about. What about "45"? Do you hate that because he keeps talking about turning a record over?

Why would I do that? 45 isn't him singing about writing the album.

Yeah but it's about listening to a 45. That's gotta get pretty annoying. We get it, he turns the record over, he doesn't need to write about it... right? Why write a whole song about a song?

That was a weird review. It wasn't as nasty as I was expecting. The guy misquoted lyrics though was always annoys me. If you're going to trash something at least get it right.

nah, if you check Wikipedia the review aggregate they have shows a generally positive critical reception, not '59 sound level, but not negative. I'm not surprised at all with that pitchfork review though.

I can't believe someone is complaining about the lyrics on Handwritten.

Stop being so overly critical and go fuck yourself.

But he is not singing about his band or writing songs... like I've said several times now, that is the annoying part.
