I like this guy, always have. But from my stand point, there has been a considerable decline, or rather, flatline in the material coming out of TCC camp since their first release. Makes complete sense now. With his talent he really shouldn't worry so much - he has it in him to make one hell of a record and I hope we hear it sooner than later.
I read the Seven Year Itch article and it said he was responsible for 90% of Vagabonds..... maybe that explains it. But he also says he was 80% responsible for The Silver Cord and that record is great.
The only full time member left? So sad. All us here at home are so proud of these guys and it'd be a shame to see them go away for good. Hopefully all these issues Matt has can be resolved and it results in a great record.
Geez I freaking love TCC and Matt MacDonald. Albatross still has some of my favorite songs on it and The Silver Cord and Seattle Sessions were great records. I haven't been able to completely dig anything since, but I think the next record, especially if Matt puts his heart and soul into it like it sounds like he will, it will be an amazing record. I will always pick up anything from TCC.
