I listened to Emergency & I for the first time tonight...you can pretty much count me as a fan now. What a cool record. I'm listening to it again right now.

Man, if you liked it a lot the first time, it's only going to get better and better. Welcome to the club.

And I'd recommend getting ahold of the followup, Change, as soon as possible.

I like the song You Are Invited.

Does that constitute enough for me to post in this thread that involves people who are actually fans of the band and have heard more than one or two of their songs?

No, probably not. I'll leave now.

LemonMelon, please tell me your favorite songs from Emergency and I, as I'm a sentimental man and want to bask in the album's glory from a new fan's eyes all over again.

I second Laz in a major way about getting Change ASAP as well.

One of the main reasons I'm loving Emergency & I so much is that the songs are not static; they tend to evolve as they go. This means that the album is more about moments than full songs. However, if I were to name a favorite, it's probably The City. Memory Machine is up there for its chorus alone, which is one of the best I've heard in a long time.

Can't argue with those choices. 'The City' may be my overall favorite track of theirs, but it's hard to say.

I'd probably say my favs from E&I are:

A Life Of Possibilities
What Do You Want Me To Say
You Are Invited
Gyroscope
The City

I know I've mentioned it before, but for some weird reason I have really good memories about listening to both Emergency & I and Change, and I can't help but to get taken back to that good mood when I listen to them or even think about them. Kinda weird I guess.

The weakest are definitely I Love A Magician and 8 1/2 Minutes...I love the chorus of the latter, but the thing doesn't cohere right, and it's not long enough to develop.

You Are Invited is incredible lyrically.

Agreed. Like you already mentioned, all of the album (and songs) have good moments. Some of them aren't as good "overall" as some of the others though. Considering the album is as solid as it is though, it's forgivable.

For some reason I liked Gyroscope at first, but it was never a favorite. Only in the last year or so I realized that it's their most listened to song according to Last FM, and I gave it more of a chance. Great song.

Now you've got me listening to the D-Plan instead of getting any work done. Curses!

Gyroscope is still one of the weaker tracks for me, but its energy is irresistible.

Anyway, Changes is next. I'm not expecting to love that one as much (I've listened to E&I at least 5 times in the last two days, which never happens with new albums for me), but it would be nice.

As long as you listen to Change knowing that it's not E&I pt. 2, I think you'll dig it.

It's honestly difficult for me to say which album I like more.

I can't believe neither of you are giving a shout-out to Back and Forth. That is one of the most intoxicating songs I've ever heard, and the lyrics are some of Travis Morrison's best.

The final verse FTW:

So in the end, whatever, we die, we dissolve
Equations unbalanced, riddles unsolved
And we were never connected or involved
Except for the intersections and crazy mathematics
With no time and no space and no schedule and no place
And we pass right through it without a trace
And sometimes that music drifts through my car
On a spring night when anything is possible
And I close my eyes and I nod my head
And I wonder how you been
And I count to a hundred and ten
Because you’ll always be my hero,
Even if I never see you again.

LeMeL and LeLaz (and anyone else who's interested), if you don't have D-plan's 'This Christmas', let me know and I'll hook you up. It's pretty great.

Say yes, Laz. It's made of Superwin.


Also, I did end up purchasing Change used. It's a great album, although it didn't have the initial "who the fuck is THIS" factor that Emergency & I did, obviously.
