I like "Too Much Blood" but it kind of drags it down for me so I've skipped that one most often.

Holy shit. I saw them Sunday night in Boston, and it was amazing - but 8 songs off Handwritten? Opening with Mae? I would have came in my pants.

It was pretty unbelievable. They came out and hit that first chord and I literally thought to myself "there is NO chance they're opening with Mae, they're just testing the sound"... pretty crazy. All the new songs sounded amazing live, the crowd was nuts for Howl.

New album is fantastic. Favorites upon first listen: 45, Handwritten, and Mae.

I'm not impressed with Biloxi Parish, but, then again, it's only my first listen.

Songs that weren't my favorite upon first few listens are now becoming my favorites (Keepsake, Too Much Blood). Such a fantastic album. AOTY so far.

Really don't get why everyone loves Handwritten (the song) so much. So you wrote all your songs by hand Brian. Thats cute, though I'm not sure how it changes everything. You're gonna name your album that? Feels a little off, but I guess whatever floats your boat... wait now your singing a whole song about how every word is handwritten? Isn't that a little, self serving? I fell in love with you guys because of the romantic images of campfires on the beach and long car rides that you painted and the heartfelt glimpses into Brian's last not because you write your lyrics by hand and then sing about it.

other parts of the album are still really good. The thing will still probably be AOTY unless The Vaccines pull out all the stops out something else comes out of the woodwork, but not including Blue Dahlia on the actual album and cutting the third verse of Blioxi standout as annoying signs of a band trying too hard to do its own thing and losing part of the magic that made their earlier stuff so great.

I still don't understand why everyone likes "Mulholland Drive" so much. Hasn't hit me yet.

Handwritten isn't about actually writing the lyrics by hand, it's just a device.
