    I could go either way with it being first or second. But Dance is just a fucking awesome and newer sound for them so I understand why they went that route.

    It's such a cool song - really deserves an end solo that doesn't sound like a first take improv. The music beneath that solo is so interesting that anything you put on top of it really has to bring something melodically to the table. I'm finding McCready's thoughtless, speedy, noodling unbearable on this track especially. Such a missed opportunity.
    It’s kind of his style. He isn’t Trey Anastasio.
    Ruining songs shouldn't be a style.

    Plus, he's got so many thoughtful, brilliant solos under his belt which totally elevate the songs - I guess he just needs to be reined in by a good producer to actually think about the noise he's making.
    I don't think it is "ruing songs" as much as "you personally like liking it ".  I love it and think it elevates the song personally

    I heard it this weekend on 90.9 The Bridge here in KC.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

  • cd finally arrived yesterday...and as the tour got shut down i decided the first spin of the new cd would be driving in my car. i wanted everything to be just right this time...under ultra perfect conditions(no traffic!). it was such a long long wait...just to finally put it in and hit play...i had only listened to the Dance track previously.

    Quick Escape i loved instantly/massively first listen. it's got everything i look for(need) in pj. prestart to finish is freaky good. drums/bass killing it. marrakesh and kerouac get nods as does space and and the video on pj utube is wonderful   puff puff pass
    background vocals, production quality, overall groove...and that guitar solo. fuck yeah they did it!! HYPE

    Sorry... Ruining songs shouldn't be a style (which is what I think he does on Quick Escape) Better?

    Evans since confirmed that the solo is exactly what it sounds like - a one take improv.
    McCready also came out on that AMA and said that he only really considers composition when songwriting, not soloing.

    He sounds, and often plays lead like he couldn't care less what it sounds like.

    We can only pray that McCready can one day achieve the talent you have for solos. Until then we will just have to live with what he gives us...tragic

    It’s not talent he’s lacking. Never said it was.

    Wasn't the Alive solo improv as well?
    I miss igotid88
  • I’d guess most of mike’s solos begin as improvs, and in some sense, always are. But with a song like Alive, it had been played, I dunno, like 100 times by the time it was recorded, and there’s a general path he follows. He does deviate and he goes on tangents, but the structure stays the same by and large. 
    Then there’s instances like this song and like Reach Down where the songs very fresh and the album recording is capturing perhaps the first burst of inspiration coursing through Mike and out his guitar. That’s why it’s a fucking beautiful solo and perfect to my ears.

    I also love Stone’s solo and can’t wait to see how they evolve live.

    I think nearly every Mike solo on record was improvised. They sure sound it. And they always evolve live. That's why I don't get why this guy is still complaining a full month later about Quick Escape.

    Well put. Actually this song is a pretty amazing example of the yin and yang that Stone and Mike have. Stone’s solo is very melodic and well thought out, whereas Mike just loses his mind and improvs. Too much of either wouldn’t work but they’ve always achieved such a great balance.
