the fact they are playing were getting a divorce has made sitting through this shitty mix completely worth it, we are on song 7 of their encore, the last 5 have been pre-59sound songs...

It likely will be. Maybe someone can work some magic on the bad mix.

Mannnnn, I've been listening to this none stop since I got the link to the stream off twitter. I ended up doing laps of the 24 hour supermarket because I knew I wouldn't lose the signal. So, so good, starts strong with 45, Handwritten is as amazing as I had hoped from when I first saw the lyrics, Here Comes My Man is aces. The middle section of Mulholland, Keepsake and Too Much Blood didn't hit me at first, but they've grown on me with repeat listens and when Howl hits, dear lord it's all brilliant from there in. Might be a knee jerk reaction but this is going tooth and claw with 59 Sound and with time it's probably going to be my favourite GA record. My AOTY for sure and that's after I was blown away by On The Impossible Past. It's been said before but we've had the return of Breaking Bad, new GA record and DKR all in a week, we're lucky fuckers sometimes.

I am just so fucking blown away by this. Even with my expectations as stratospheric as they were, this record manages to surpass them. The guitar sound, Fallon's voice, and most of all, the songwriting, have never been better. I can only hope that this album turns them into the superstars they deserve to be.

I've enjoyed my first listen. I can't wait to get my hands on the CD on Monday now though to hear it properly.

I really could not agree with you more. I was blown away by the last two releases, but this one is just something different.

It took a few listens to sink in, but Handwritten is definitely surpassing my expectations. I can't put it up there with the 59' Sound, but it's definitely a step up from American Slang in my opinion. Don't get me wrong I love American Slang, but the standout songs on this album are far better than anything on American Slang. "National Anthem" may be my favorite TGA song ever. I also love "45", "Desire", "Handwritten" and "Mae". "Too Much Blood" and "Biloxi Parish" took some getting used to because of the guitars, but they are growing on me. Benny's drumming is better than ever. They need to come back to Portland again, I need to hear these songs live.
