I always thought it was heart too.

Random thought but I never got that into "National Anthem".

= underrated Gaslight song IMO

Why have I never heard this god damn.

I was kind of hoping this record would be similar to American Slang, but moving forward with the sound they had on Handwritten sounds good too. I'm just ready to hear this.

This post implies there are songs off SoS which are worse than Desire...
I don't spend a lot of time with Sink or Swim, so I didn't feel qualified to pick out specific songs for the thread, but I'd take "Desire" over about half the songs on that album.

Quote:
I disagree. I think it gets a lot of love because it sounds like it could've come off T59S.
Except it would be the worst song on 59 Sound if it were on that record.

We've talked about it in the thread multiple times, but that key change just doesn't work. There's a lot of way musically to set up a key change and they just don't do any of them. It just oscillates back and forth for honestly no good reason.

Handwritten seemed like a momentum killer, coming off of the build they had from each previous record.

The songs released so far are better than a lot of stuff on Handwritten, and I really like that record. I trust the Fallon.

When I first heard "45", I thought that they were going to fucking explode because of that single..and it just didn't happen. Maybe a steady gain of fans, but nothing like I expected.

I never thought that single had mainstream written on it -- "Here Comes Your Man" -- however, I did.

I think it'd get passed over in the same way "Howl" does -- which I don't think it gets enough love.

Howl is such a great song! Just a straight up rock song. I just wish it wasn't so short.

I always thought the lyric in American Slang was "I've got your name tattooed inside of my heart," just to tie into the heart/arm conversation.

Always heard "arm" there.

I think the length is one thing that makes "Howl" so great. It's just this short burst of raw emotion in the middle of the album, and it works so well.

Very true. I find myself really hitting the first 3 songs and then howl, when it comes to this album. Usually i play Howl more than once.

Seems like there's less fan anticipation for this album than there was for Handwritten.

I'm freaking stoked on it man! This and Ryan Adams in the same year is super exciting for me. Molly & The Zombies have been in my headphones since those red bull sessions too!

A bit nervous about Adams though. I really liked the Acoustic route he took on Ashes & Fire and he's moving away from that it would appear.

Jesus I'm excited for it. The title track is one of my favorite things Brian has ever recorded. Halloween is awesome too.

I've heard this described as "Grungelight Anthem", is that accurate at all? Because I'll be fully on board (not that I wasn't already) if this is at all Pearl Jam/Screaming Trees/Soundgarden-inspired in any way, ha.
