I've been coming back to this album pretty frequently and I am going to do this.

JUST THE BEST
Laura
Outstanding
Lillies
All Your Gold
The Haunted Man
Marilyn
A Wall
Quite Good (Bomac's idea of "quite good")
Winter Fields
Oh Yeah
Pretty Ordinary
Horses of the Sun
Rest Your Head
Deep Sea Diver

There's a fair gap between quite good and pretty ordinary, which is a great shame, because JUST THE BEST and Outstanding put this into AOTY territory. I think it may still end up in my top five, those six tunes are just so good.

Interesting.

I'd rank as follows:

Sublime:
Winter Fields (Bass flute. Strings. Imagery that takes me back to my childhood. Holy shit, strings! By far my favourite track on the album.)
Laura
Lillies
Horses of the Sun
Marilyn
The Haunted Man

Good:
Deep Sea Diver
Rest Your Head (so much better live)

OK:
All Your Gold (I feel the urge to sing 'somebody that I used to know' every time I hear it)
A Wall

Seriously?:
Oh Yeah (just embarrassing, really)

Seeing this gorgeous lady live for the first time at a festival on Sunday. Hoping the crowd is respectful and Laura resonates as much as I hope it will.

And the other songs too, of course.

I hope you've heard more than the most recent album.

New album is great regardless, but there are so many other fantastic songs across the other two albums.

1. Two Suns (one of my favorite albums in general)
2. The Haunted Man (very good)
3. Fur and Gold (good sound, but inconsistent quality)

I'd say pay some attention to What's A Girl To Do?, The Wizard, and Bat's Mouth. Then go to Youtube and listen to Daniel, Pearl's Dream, and Glass. Should be good prep.

Spot on, I'd say.

It's not that I don't love The Haunted Man, but yeah, nothing comes close to touching Two Suns for me.

I still like Fur and Gold the best.

Been listening to the new album a lot. I like it a great deal, but it's one of those albums where nothing else on it clicks with me quite as much as the first song I've heard, which was Laura. Bloody love that song.
