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

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

Yeah, don't get how anyone could dislike that song. But I never understood why people didn't love "We Did It When We Were Young" either, so...

It's very close for me. TDK is a more personal story, TDKR blew my mind with how massive it is. They're both amazing in different ways.

For now, it's TDKR = TDK > BB

Oh lol, phone browser.

So replace TDK with American Slang, TDKR with Handwritten, and BB with Sink or Swim.

Of course, 59 Sound > all

When you think about it, every thread is a TDKR thread.

There's really not enough Maria in Handwritten. Mae is just a less compelling villain and I hate how you can't fuckin understand her muffled voice.

Only flaw is that this is definitively their most personal record.

"With his newsboy caps, sleeves of tattoos and wiry intensity, Fallon can come off like a barista getting high on his own supply."

does anyone know what that means?

Not really...

Rolling Stone reviews are just so worthless these days. What does a 3 or a 3.5 even mean coming from them? What does a 5? Two paragraphs should never pass for a piece of thoughtful music criticism.

I haven't seen a single in depth or descriptive review for this album aside from this site's.
