You're hilarious, Jason.

Many artists feel like their art is never finished, and that applies to far more than music (one of my architecture professors still laments an award-winning project he designed that he wasn't completely satisfied with). There are things I would change about every single song I have ever released, from Texas to Full Frontal. But I can't spend eternity re-doing the same 12 songs. The process must end at some point. My favorite albums by other artists have things I dislike about them. I've never heard an album that I consider perfect.

The funny thing is: many times when I feel I have a song that is more "complete" than its demo, people like the demo more.

The imperfections are often the things we love about albums. My albums are obviously imperfect, and always will be. I have no problem saying that.

Go ask one of your favorite artists if they feel like they've ever released a perfect album and see what they say.

This song is unique to the album, I think. It was the last track to make the cut, and––in my opinion––the weakest song on the album (though my drummer loves it and insists we should play it live). It's also the oldest track on the album (initially recorded over 2 years ago, but having since undergone many changes).

By contrast: Learned My Lesson and Nothing is Wrong (not sure which one it is you like more) were both recorded entirely in the last month. Bigot Like You actually shares some chords with Brain ≠ Heart (Ancient Electrons) and Out of Your Mind (Evaders EP) since all 3 were written around the same time (late 2009, I believe).

I'm also releasing a 20+ track b-sides record at the same time as Full Frontal that you could grab a track off of to replace this one, if you feel so inclined! :)
whoa, you wrote a song about Romney 2 years ago? super ahead of the game, or...

The music was written over 2 years ago. The lyrics were written about a month ago.

The b-sides record I'm releasing has 5-10 instrumentals on it (ranging from 3 years old to less than a month old), and this would have been one of them had I not finished it recently.

A lot of my songs sit around as instrumentals for months or years before being finished.
