My very late 2 cents.

I like this album a lot. I don't love it yet, but that may happen. The two words that come to mind when I listen to it are "rich" and "melancholy." The layers of music are so rich that it takes a while to get all of it; the timings and rhythms are really amazing.

It has a melancholy sound. Even if you don't know the back story, you can hear the sadness in all of it.

Burn the Witch is stunning every time I hear it. Thom's vocal performance is astonishing, really. The other songs I liked right away are Desert Island Disk and Identikit. The Numbers takes me by surprise each time, though, so maybe that one will make the list.

I leave tomorrow for 23 days on the road. I plane to spend a lot of those days with this album.

There's something quite beguiling about The Numbers. It just popped into my head today. A bit of a sleeper. The piano is wonderful. I love the jazzy notes during the intro before the acoustic guitar comes in, and the more bold da-da-da notes towards the end, could easily be a TV show theme song, the way it ends, reminds me a bit of how House used Teardrop.

This album works as a soundtrack for driving through Badlands National Park.

One of my 2 or 3 favorites. Maybe my favorite period. Great description.

Like, on the album? Or ever?

And thanks. I love that feeling of being vindicated 😊

No, not ever. On the album.

Oddly, I couldn't hum it for you even after hearing the album 10 times or so. Same goes for a few other tracks.

But every time I do listen to it that one really stands out.

It has come to this: me refreshing StubHub to find a reasonably priced ticket for tonight. No luck so far, but prices seem to be coming down. Cheapest is still $150 for a lateral seat with possibly partial view.

Looking forward to tonight's and tomorrow night's shows! I have been purposely avoiding feeds nor doing a lot of setlist peeping so I can experience things fresh. Chillin' with a seat in Sec 223 over Ed tonight and have a GA tomorrow, am aiming for a rail spot since I am short.

For those going, have a blast at the shows tonight and tomorrow!

And I agree with Laz: I've listened to the album so many times by this point and still couldn't hum a couple of the tracks or recall a melody to hang my hat on, but I still enjoy the songs a lot.

That's absolutely baffling
