    Beautiful!

    guess this is a song about Chris Cornell? good song
    I’m thinking his own brother’s death is also an influence.
    Also named Chris I believe.

    Love this!! I had read (heard maybe?) this story and of course wanted to hear his dad’s vocals… I’m happy he is sharing that with us!

    Also seeing the album like a setlist and having special guests at the end… lol smh.

    The fuck you part is pretty direct. Could show his anger, disappointment, sadness that they left too soon. I like it.

    Like the new song. With all his new solo stuff, I like it and appreciate he is releasing an album, but I’m not loving the material like I expected to. Maybe it will grow on me over time. 

    New track has some Talking Heads vibes in the bridge.

    I'm loving these 3 songs and the one he did on Elton’s album. Which make me look forward to theor collaboration on his album. Also the Stevie Wonder track. 
    If "Without You" was on this album. It would have been done the way Natalie Maines did it on her's.

  • Great song. Apple has it in Dolby Atmos. I wonder if the album will be released that way.

    I like the first 2 songs, but The Haves is just a bit slower than I expected.  Good song, just dont always find the mood for it.  

    Brother The Cloud could have been the first single.  I really dig this one.

    I still think Haves is a dud. Long Way is okay, but this one is really solid.

    My thoughts exactly. Some of the guitars have way too much reverb on them, but I can get over that.

    Yeah, this has to be about maybe losing both....an actual brother and a friend that was a brother.  

    "Oh I can hear him sing."

    I mean...that has to be about Cornell.  

    But like good art....this song can be applied to everyone.

    Was hoping the new EV album will be released digitally in 24Bt 192khz quality. Doesn't look like it will

    Brother The Cloud was just released in 24Bit 48hKz.

    But The Haves is not a good song. I'm still confused.

    Only kidding man. This is all a matter of opinion, obviously.

    Can’t think anything other than this is a song about Chris ‘I search the sky for a glimpse of his blue eyes’!!!……and the ‘fuck you’s’ at the end, are they for Vicky?!?! Whatever the subject matter I absolutely love it and the final section is pure PJ, band playing or not! Here’s to more of the same!

    The "fuck you"s are for Chris, in a playful way, like "screw you for dying."


    In the verses before, he basically says, "If you die before I do, and get to heaven, put your arms around my friend and tell him Fuck You for me, for dying. Thats what friends are for."
