"Pressure Kids?" Really? She soundchecked "Fucked Up Kid" when I saw her. I wish she had played it. When she was asking for requests I shouted it out from the third row, only for it to be drowned out by cries of "1234!"

I have had a tough time getting into the Canning record, despite Chameleon.
I wasn't crazy about it, but it's blossoming. "Churches Under the Stairs" is a nice song. I really like "Snowballs and Icicles." I recently got more into "Love is New" after seeing it performed live. But fuck, man. "Chameleon." That's a slice of heaven.

I had to give it a listen just to remember it, I liked it. Maybe I'll have to give this album another spin this week to see if I still feel the same about it.

My favourite Canning track is definitely Possible Grenade. I love the vocal work and the atmosphere on it. Just sounds really personal and like he's pouring every emotion into the song, but not in a cheesey or Stars-like way.

Yeah, Stars grates pretty hard, after a while. Always great for a few baller singles, though, from each album. Campbell annoys the piss out of me, as a performer/personality.

Completely agree with this. That's one reason I like Heart more than any of their other albums. It's more restrained. The histrionics by Torquil are getting to the point of self-parody, one reason I didn't care for In Our Bedroom After the War.

Still, it's undeniable how great some of their songs are.
