Has the light gone out for you?

That's what makes it so great though.

They pack all of this goodness into 4 minutes.

Agreed. Although I like Bodysnatchers a lot.

I don't remember the last time I was in love with a single song like I am with Reckoner. It's perfect. I can't wait to hear what it sounds like live. I want to see if Thom can hit those high falsetto notes as perfectly and heavenly as he does on record on a consistant basis live.

This album is so good, I can't even describe it in the least.

I mean, it's like trying to describe plutonium ice cream.

And the ice cream vendor is a bit of a dick.

And the people in your town couldn't care less.

Yeah, plutonium rock baby.

Because everybody likes a bit of dick, maybe we all get cancer.

Good stuff. We'll all catch it on YouTube, I'm sure.
Couldn't stop the radiation from expanding, I had to tape it.

I've listened to the album a couple of times. It strikes me as solid, but to be honest none of the songs have really jumped out and kicked my arse yet.

I'll give it another listen tonight.

I'll say it again. I love the drums on Videotape. I find them haunting and purposeful. I finally heard an old version from the show I saw and it had the drums as well, just slightly different but they were there.

That's what a few now obsessed people said at first.

namkcuR, your description of All I Need makes sense! I think it actually made me enjoy the song even more.

As should several songs.

I just would like to have been a fly on the wall in the studio to hear the discussion about when and why to cut off All I Need when they did. I mean, is there no Larry Mullins, Jr. in the band to say wtf, let the people climax properly? Did they all just go, 'Yeah, cut it off right there. That's enough. That's perfect.' I don't get it. I have to accept it but it breaks my heart a little bit each time.

joyful, I was thinking yesterday about how you feel All I Need is cut off too soon and was listening to the song intently to see what I think. I really didn't think it was that soon. There is a good crescendo and then instead of dragging it on and on (like U2 sometimes tends to do), they cut it off. I didn't mind so much. I don't know. Maybe I'll change my mind if I listen to the song a few more times and get even more obsessed with it.

The album itself could and should have been longer though. Maybe not as long as Hail but at least more than 42 min.
