Firstly, thanks to the 10C for getting the new record to us early!

Secondly....I just sat down to listen to the whole thing straight through.

Can we all agree how absolutely BEAUTIFUL River Cross is? Instantly my favorite track on this album. Wow.

    They really nailed this one.  I loved this song from the first videos of EV playing solo, and was so excited to see it on the album.

    Correction. Retrograde -> Rivers Cross are the perfect closers!

    I'll take River Cross any day, though I do love Indifference.

    One listen last night...and I agree!  River Cross is simply beautiful!  Such a perfect closer. I can’t wait for the vinyl to arrive (usps tacking says today) and hear this beauty on wax.  Fucking love it

    Instantly reminded me of Kid A the closer to Motion Picture Soundtrack.

    Not really getting River Cross at all.  Sounds a bit of a dirge so far

    Love it. I expected it to explode much more at the end though 
  • Tony82087Tony82087 Posts: 7
    It's my favorite song the album so far. Reminds me of a Peter Gabriel ballad. Just love it.

    It’s just ok.  Definitely in the third tier of songs for me.  
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    To me it is angry and consoling at the same time. A gem.

    Same....I don't care for many slow songs. 

    I like that some people love it though.

    I like it but it definitely screams Ed solo to me when I listen.  That shouldn’t distract me but it does for some reason.  But I like it.
