I'll probably skip it.

you seem to skip a lot of your favorite musicians live shows, joey.....

Only when they play terrible concert venues.

Not a fan of Radio City?

For concerts, no I'm not. It's a great venue otherwise.

Acoustics, layout?
Just curious as I have only seen two shows there, Ryan Adams and The National.

I've had two not great concert experiences there. Sound wasn't an issue. It was the audiences. The space is massive and the vibes at those shows were so weird. It's hard to connect with the performer. In both shows the artists addressed the seeming lack of enthusiasm from the crowd. Which sucked because I'm both cases the artists were on fire. It really has to do with the kinds of people who go to RCMH coupled with the size of the space. I've always found the sound to be great.

One of those shows was the famous Jack White meltdown where he walked off stage after just under an hour and never came back.

Ah, had similar experiences with my shows as well. I think I prefer The Beacon of all the venues I've attended in the city.

But the Jason Isbell cover is WAY better. It's already among my favorite covers of all time.

I've had enough time with this record now to say it's her second best album, behind Strange Mercy.

Somebody Like Me
The Melting of the Sun
Down

Are the top 3 tracks and some of her all around best work. There are zero bad songs on this record.

It faded into oblivion with me. I feel Masseduction is way better and right now, this one feels more like an exercise on style.

Opposite for me. It's expanded and gelled for me over the months. This is easily my second favorite St. Vincent record. The whole thing is masterful and keeps giving, I think. Which is not to say that Masseduction isn't also a masterpiece. I love the hell out of both. Two different moods. Two different tones. Two different styles. But DH is where I'm at right now.

I'm with vinylguy, the new one is probably my least favorite so far.

That doesn't really surprise me. I think the album it has the most in common with is Actor and I know you're not super big on that one either.
