    Well "I'm going to see my friends, I'm going to see my friends!" next weekend at Ohana Fest and will be blasting this CD on the way over. 
    I like the fast paced rhythmic poppines of the first half of the CD and the slower introspective edge of the second half. Also dig the artwork.

    Yes, but Backspacer is just so boring and uninspired. At 36 minutes or something a real halfassed effort imo.  At least LB takes some chances stylistically and has some diversity. BS songs are all among their worst and Unthought Known is easily the most overrated, plodding song with the cringiest lyrics in their catalog.
    Both wrong. Both albums are extremely underrated

    Cool article. I enjoyed the part about being a second generation fanatic because I also fit that description. Good to know there are people like us, discovering this great band  years, heck, decades later!

    Nice of them to celebrate Ed's second solo album.

    ed wrote the music to 4 of the 11 tracks. I'd hardly call that a solo effort. 

    what I find more interesting is that Ed didn't collaborate musically with one other person on that record. 

    I just looked at LB and the writing is pretty much to a T the same as BS. Weird. Almost like it was a Load/Reload type situation.

    Be interesting to see how the new record pans out in terms of writing music. Mike wrote the music for Can’t Deny Me. Always of interest to see who writes music for each song that makes a record. Seems of late they all write separately as opposed to jamming and writing together.
