You could have gone on at length about this one as far as I'm concerned. I've been following them for awhile and was eagerly anticipating this record. I have to admit that had such high expectations the first time I listened to it I wasn't sure how I felt about it; I didn't know what I wanted from it.
The more I listen to it the more I love it and recognize it as being, like you said, a timeless record. The production is fantastic, there are so many beautiful moments, and there are so many strong songs on there; I'm always remembering another one when I think about it. I said this in the other thread but I haven't been this excited about a band in close to 10 years (since the Killers debuted with Hot Fuss).
Side note; I always liked "cool" because it just seems like she's so entranced by him. Cold has its own connotations which work well, too.
