    I can't even manage to get 4 co-workers to go to lunch at the same time, so no idea how 5 millionaires and a producer end up at the same place at the same time.

    Do you get 4 co-workers to work with you  at the same time?

    There was also some creativity born out of this album:

    Ooh, yeah! All right!
    Were [Pearl] jammin
    I wanna [Pearl] jam it wid you.
    Were [Pearl] jammin, [Pearl] jammin
    And I hope you like [Pearl] jammin too.

  • The Fixer was PJ jumping some kind of shark.

    Got Some was a highlight when I first heard it.

    I like whatever they jumped.  Love The Fixer. One of Eddie’s best choruses ever. It isn’t any more of a pop song than Betterman or Daughter.

    Thank you!  I've never understood the negativity surrounding The Fixer.  It seems like 99% of folks here want to puke at the utter mention of the song's existence.  It's a solid, catchy tune with a nice message to it.

    Exactly! The original demo (aka Need to Know) is so addictive.

  • The first three tracks are great, enjoyable, solid songs. I get the knock on Just Breathe and The end: they sound live EV songs and not PJ songs and maybe not the most exciting live, but regardless, they are great songs. I heard the end last week after not hearing it in a while and it made me stop what I was doing and it really affected me. A hallmark of a great song. Unthought Known is the best song they’ve written on Avacado, BS, or LB. Felt that way even when I first heard it. With the good comes the not so good: Johnny Guitar and Speed of Sound are in the bottom of their catalogue for me. Force of Nature and Supersonic have grown on me but if someone said they weren’t good songs I wouldn’t argue it. Overall a solid enjoyable album that I liked from the beginning and if anything I like even more the last few years.

    Far and away their worst album.

    Easily their best, most enjoyable album since Yield. Compared to the weak, thin vocals in Avocado, Eddie actually sounds clear, full and, to be honest, good. The fact that they remembered to incorporate actual melodies in their songs definitely helped as well. A couple sappy love songs but overall a great sounding, lean and mean mix of tunes.
