How come? I can't imagine that.

I saw them in a half empty tent at a festival because Foo Fighters were playing at the same time (you could even hear them during the quieter songs) and it was still awesome.

A contained, unified, coherent mood and state of being. You hardly ever get that with albums. Achtung Baby, Maxinquaye, maybe Kid A or OK Computer if I give it a half-second's thought. Or something like A Ghost Is Born.
Trouble Will Find Me fits this description better than Boxer in my mind. No huge stand-outs, but amazingly consistent with practically flawless sequencing. Not as good as some of those albums you're mentioned, but an album in the truest sense of the word, which is its biggest strength.

Thanks, phanan.

I wish they'd changed it up a little bit more, maybe given it some drums and turned it into a sad rocker like Bloodbuzz, Ohio. That could have been great.

I think it was the venue. All-seated and more suited to plays, opera, stand-up comedy. It felt like a funeral parlour. The gig really lacked soul, for want of a better word. Still good though.

Hmm, only available on satellite radio, or do they have some sort of online stream as well?

I'm a Sirius/XM subscriber with all the bells and whistles, and I still can never get their online streams to play for me. So I wouldn't bother with Sirius/XM's website, but maybe you were asking about a separate stream somewhere else.

At the Barclays concert, where I've discovered that we have folding chairs for seats rather than the regular arena seats. Besides that, I've got an amazing view. 12th row directly across from the stage.

Have you heard any good jokes about the bike valet or were all of them already told on Twitter?
