For those who like "Brothers" and "Best Night," I recommend "Comin Through" from an EP a few years ago. It's one of their best songs, although I recommend the studio version as they do it differently in concert.

As I said previously, I didn't really like "Lost in a Dream" the few times I heard it.

But I put "A Deeper Understanding" on and it almost immediately grabbed me.

The "Pain"-"Holding On"-"Strangest Thing" stretch of songs is what really "hooked" me.

New album is great, but nothing can touch Lost in the Dream for me.

Still stuck on Lost in the Dream. I don't know this genre of music that well at all, but it feels like this record influenced some of the choices Wilco made on Star Wars.

You hear many influences on this record, but does everyone else hear Pearl Jam in those guitars at the end of "An Ocean In Between"?

A Deeper Understanding finally sunk in and I can't stop listening. It's replaced coffee. I look forward to falling asleep so I can wake up and listen again.

Holding On is my song of the year! :nice:

They are playing 2 Philly shows this month, after none the rest of the year. I would guess more shows to come in 2020 and probably new music too.

Of you would’ve posted this question three days ago I would’ve unequivocally said yes. But they played zero new songs at the two philly shows that they just played. They did play a ton from slave ambient though.
