And thanks for mention, makes me feel wanted.
Yeah, that happens sometimes. Happened to me with Waylon Jennings.

That lead singer for that LA band PAPA has a good baritone too. And he's the drummer omg.

I would be surprised if Danger Mouse doesn't lead Bono down the path of more vocal restrain.

You're just not into baritones, huh? I love Waylon's voice, it's silky.

As an aside, it makes me sad how often we disagree, as 95% of the songs you post, I actually really enjoy/have enjoyed for quite some time.
Well, my going into The National thread and saying they suck would be ultimate douche. They're enjoying themselves talking 'bout records they like.

No, I like it. Silky is the right word. But it took me a few listens.

Now ask me about The National.

Adding to this conversation, I find that I no longer need to mentally prepare myself to hear Tom Waits sing. It's like slipping into an old shoe now.

That's true. I suppose what I'm getting at is that I wasn't looking for an argument. My apologies for extending it beyond what was necessary.

OK. Should Danger Mouse produce the National? #fullcircle

That line Cobbler posted comes from a National song. I believe he meant it tongue-in-cheek.

When he said what he said, he didn't mean anything

He apologized to the vines, but no one saw it.

No. The National has as Alt-Country meets quiet ShoeGaze meets early REM vibe - I don't think Danger Mouse would be comfortable in this territory.

The last thing I want to hear on The National's next album is a bunch of funky bleeps and whistles (looking at your Broken Bells)

I hope you're right. I'd like to hear more "So Cruel" type of singing.

The National have now made 4 GREAT albums in a row. A feat my beloved U2 has not accomplished.

But I can understand they are not for everyone. I don't see The National as a top 5 grossing band - which is fine with me. They seemed to have found comfort in the medium scale success, and that's perfect for a 4AD band like this. I wish REM had stayed in the same "range".

BTW: I took 7 other people to the recent concert at the Greek - and none of them had heard of the National before. Each of them came away saying "wow, that singer!".

How does this relate to U2? I would love to hear a more subtle album like Trouble Will Find Me, focusing on the deep/scared aspects of Bono's voice (like late Sinatra/Cash) as well as distant atmospherics from Edge (enough ear piercing chimes for a bit) along with a groovy rhythm section (think Achtung Baby).
