Finally looked into these guys. Bummed they played down the street from my house back in June and they weren't on my radar.

Anyway, I may have been seduced by the fact that this article mentions my neighborhood and some of its notable landmarks. Or that the writer drew comparisons to The Boss, U2, and The Replacements. But I really like what this frontman has to say for himself. I'm 5 tracks into the album and they're pretty damned great.

Also, I love long albums.

He's an incredible intelligent and insightful dude. And his back story is so fucking sad. It's amazing he's got to where he is now.

Definitely a fascinating guy. Need to give the album another spin after a month or so without it.

If Apple Music could stop deleting my offline downloads

Thank God I listened to this album before I saw this atrocity of a thread.
