Now that I've sobered up, I think he does sound like Tom Petty AND Dylan, but I don't think I was thinking of either of those guys.

I like the album. I don't love it, though. They were much more dynamic live. Do I need to investigate their fist album?

You'll investigate my fist album if you think the album isn't dynamic.

It's a solid album, but Baby Missiles, Brothers and Come To The City aside not a great album.
I'll keep listening though, because last year I felt the same about The National's record, and it's become my favourite record of the past few years.

I reckon It's Your Destiny, I Was There and Your Love Is Calling My Name are super tracks.. In addition to the ones you mentioned. That's 6 super tracks, which amount to be a pretty brilliant album in my book.

I'm really enjoying their performance at Lollapalooza. I liked the last album ok, but I think their songs really improve live...

I had mixed feelings about them live. I really enjoyed it, but they sound almost completely different. Had a great time, shame the mixing was a bit wonky, "Baby Missiles" sounded like an almost completely new song.

Sounded like a new song in a good or bad way? I do like that song quite a bit. Unfortunately it's the only thing on tht album I really, really love. The rest is just ok.

I hear you. I had trouble identifying some songs. "I Was There" was one of them, and it's my favorite from Slave Ambient, so...
