That was my first reaction as well. Keep listening to it.

And how can you not like Kalhoun?!!!


It's not that I don't like it, per se. Rather, it just that it is by far DA's nadir, IMHO.

when I saw the MS& M artwork and some of the song titles
I was set for some of the terms you described-
and the previews were good-but set no hook in me or anything.

But - hey please -would someone read my review??? please? please??
(jk)

I had to again (fer once??) be perfectly honest after the first spin- and I wrote my thoughts after bout 5 spins
n the thing has gone bout 7 more since.
I dont listen to a single CD 12 or more times unless it has indeed set its hook deeply


I have given it several spins and will continue to give it several more. I waiting to realize how wrong I am.

I've had the complete opposite reaction to you. I've loved everything from straight out the gate (with the exception of Kalhoun).

Hope you're wrong on the Message Boards Crying


I must admit I was a little underwhelmed on first listens in the car. However, after cranking it up on the home stereo and on headphones it didn't take me too many more listens to enjoy and appreciate it a lot more, enough that I was comparing to Zoom Daddy and trying to decide which one I liked best.


I want to like this much, MUCH more than I have been. And I don't see the connection to Zoom Daddy. I wish I did. Oh, how I wish. Frown

I enjoy the album, but I do think the "artwork" is a bit lame.

I agree, very Zoom Daddy, which I suppose was another step in the evolution (micro not macro) of their sound.

But my opinion at this point is pretty subjective as I'm jonesing for anything Terry. Cool Take a few years off and you'll see what I mean. I do that with the Beatles or The Stones or "Who"-ever from time to time and then upon returning you get that ol' enthusiasm back and you hear things that you didn't catch before, kinda like whatchin a movie again for the umteenth time Big Grin

I realize this typo is unintentional, but it had me laughing. I can see Terry standing with one flared boot on a smoking cannon, "Arrr, missed the second one."

As an aside, a friend of mine realized today that 'Arrrr' is not an authentic pirate expression, but rather came from Long John Silver in the original Treasure Island black and white film.

I thought everyone knew that. The original pirate expression was spelled with a "gh" Red Face The correct spelling was always "Arrrrgh!"
