I've heard that song before somewhere, but I can't remember when or what it was called.

EDIT: Remembered, they played it live in London almost 2 years ago, video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bcwgb_3bjoY

Pitchfork and Paste both crapped on their new record. I happen to like it, but I don't think it comes close to touching Like A Virgin

"Those 3 things are almost like I found ways to talk about all of it with the same thing so talking to our fans, saying we built this house with our hands and our time and our blood about our band and saying but it’s never going to be the same."

Right...

I truly hated this record 2 weeks ago. Something clicked 3 days ago and now i can't get enough. though the end is still weak. maybe my feelings will change in a few more days. i've given this record 15 spins now, and i'm still finding new things about it.

Nope, I just remembered. I heard it almost 2 years ago live when they played it in London. I even took a video of it:

Crazy to hear how much the song has progressed. Sounds completely different, only a few of the lyrics are the same.

Also, the new version is super Nirvana-esque. I always got the comparison, but never heard it much. I hear it here.

Simple Math is a concept record. These 2 songs must not be a part of the "concept."

I might have a problem comprehending what Andy is trying to say in regard to the song. Something related to the fans and his marriage? By the way I dig this song ever since I first heard it on their facebook. It got such a haunting feeling to it
