I listened to this and it has me a bit worried that it won't be too long before Brian is just totally disenchanted with the music industry and just stops altogether with the interviews/media and new releases become much more sporadic (ala Brand New). Hoping I'm wrong but he just seems to be so angry lately.
Yeah I agree with you. He doesn't seem like a happy bunny at the moment. Personally not too enthralled with the new album just yet, but won't give up on it just yet.
I wish he'd let himself be a bit more proud, comfortable and happy with his level of success. I guess as we've learned countless times recently that it doesn't solve some of the deeper struggles.
Great songwriter, all the best to him.
