Yup, same here.

A Ghost Is Born is annoying to playing on vinyl for exactly that reason. I really like The Late Greats, but often end up just stopping the album short.

By far the part that annoys me the most in this album is when the instruments stop in the "it's your fight, your fight" portion of the chorus in Get Out of Your Own Way. It's so cheap.

I'm trying to put together SOI and SOE in one album, experimenting with some tracklists. This is something I kind of like:

1. Love is All We Have Left
2. Sleep Like a Baby Tonight
3. Invisible
4. Red Flag Day
5. Raised by Wolves
6. Cedarwood Road
7. Summer of Love
8. Reach Around
9. The Blackout
10. Lights of Home
11. The Little Things
12. The Troubles

This is not particularly cohesive, but I think it would be a decent album.

So no special verification for this second LA pre-sale? I'm just good to go tomorrow?

I'm literally having trouble saying anything good about the song. I don't know if there's any part of it, musically or lyrically that I enjoy.

I think Porcupine Tree is the only band I love with a large discography where I would not skip something on the majority of their albums.
According to Spotify's year end stats, I skipped 23 songs this year, total. Out of 66,000 plays.

Yeah, I rarely skip stuff. Most of the time when I listen to music, it’s while I’m working and is from my MacBook through my studio monitors across the room. Kinda makes skipping tough when you’ve gotta stop working and walk across the room.

You'll get verified for Taylor Swift instead.

This is my biggest issue with the album. Edge really seems to be intentionally staying in the background on almost every track.

A co-worker was trying to buy cheap seats for LA1, and can't because he didn't get Verified back in November, so he might buy some tickets from StubHub.

Way to stop the scalpers, TicketBastard.
