After a few listens, at least, I think I agree with this. National Anthem is the only song I haven't really connected with, but obviously I've only had the record for a day.

I can see where he's coming from, but if he's going to do that, we'd better get another solid string of North American tour dates...without Rise Against.

Yeah I like the song a lot. Just don't think it fits with the rest of the record. "Mae" ties the whole record together in one song..

Anyone know if the CDQ has leaked yet? kinda surprising that since the album is out tomorrow in a lot of places it hasn't actually leaked.

I'd rather pick my favorite child than pick my favorite Brian Fallon record (and song)...they are all so great in their own little way.

(I don't have children.)

Grimey's record store in Nashville had a meet and greet with the band today and they had the new album for sale so even though I'd already preordered the vinyl ages ago I couldn't pass up the chance to have a signed copy. Can't wait to get home tomorrow and listen to it. They also played Howl tonight which was awesome.

Just got this email! Am I early? I thought it was the 24th... maybe different in New Zealand?

Either way, it downloaded! Rocking out to Biloxi Parish without nasty compression artifacts right now :D

Edit: oooh bonus tracks...

Fucking love National Anthem, y'all are crazy.

"And I remember she used to look so good in that dress
Now she just screams how I promised her more than this"

That part fucks me up.

Hamlet, I'm tired of you getting everything before the rest of us. You should make up for it by posting the bonus tracks in the b-sides thread.

Probably my favorite line on the album, and that song is perfect. Totally Darkness on the Edge of Town-era Springsteen.

Okay so yeah Handwritten is my favorite album of theirs I think--or at the very least tied with The '59 Sound. Finally got a chance to listen last night and then again this morning.

Glad to hear it. Personally, I think this blows everything Fallon has done out of the water...and I love all the other records, '59 especially.

Probably my favorite too. Hits just too close to home.
