I've never liked "Swallowed Whole", just not my back and sounds like an outtake from Into The Wild.

Unpopular opinion, but I think "Sleeping By Myself" is one of the best songs on this album (which is my least favorite PJ album).

This album has aged very well for me. I listened on my walk into work and I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed it. The powerful guitars and Matt/Jeff are a big reason for it.

Remember how pissed everyone was when the tracklist dropped and OH MY GOD THEY TOOK UP SUCH PRECIOUS SPACE WITH A FULL BAND VERSION OF SOME DUMB EDDIE VEDDER SONG THAT WE'VE HAD FOR LIKE EIGHT YEARS ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ?

That was fun.

The full band Setting Forth is surprisingly fun.

God, no thanks.

I think Sleeping By Myself might be the worst thing they’ve ever done.

Sleeping By Myself is a shit factory. It should never have been on the album. I may feel a bit less hostile towards it if it were a B-side or fan club single.

Getaway is a good song hidden in a terrible mix.
Mind Your Manners is ok
My Fathers's Son could be good with a better delivery from Ed and a less wordy lyrics
Sirens is ok, deserved a better delivery too.
Lightning Bolt is alright.
Infalible has an awesome vers, a cool bridge, an awesome instrumental with a terrible chorus
Pendulum is GOOD.
Swalloed Whole is awful.
Let The Records Play is fun, and I love the main riff and the instrumental.
Sleeping By Myself is awful.
Yellow moon is GREAT
Future Days is terrible.

Still my least favorite album, the closer I have to be a bad album.

I’m on board with almost all of this. :thumbsup:
