Hi, I tried searching for a thread dedicated to this record, but got an error message (i emailed the address on the message), so please feel free to make fun, give me wedgies and merge it. I mean, I'm assuming there was a thread for this record, right?

Anyway, I'm hit and miss when it comes to side project/solo releases. I love Bayleaf but have yet to have Moonlander really "hit me." Sidebar regarding Moonlander - what are some favorite tracks? Is it like a lot of PJ albums - where the track list isn't too hot but the music is?

Okay, so Jeff really impressed me with this release. "Just Like That" has this ramshackle, post-punk, barely written feel to it. Not sure if it's a great album opener, though. The next track, "Give Me A Reason" would work better, I think. "Bulldozer" reminds me a LOT of God's Dice, even down to the pace and placement of the bridge and the way it goes back into the final verse.

I won't get into it track-by-track, but some early favorites include "Bulldozer," "Life of a Salesman," and "Doubting Thomasina."

I'm going to spin this one a few more times and digest it before getting into his 2012 follow-up, but for those who have heard that one and/or both Jeff solo records, what's the consensus on While My Heart Beats?
