It's slowly growing on me, but this album hasn't grabbed me anywhere near as much as any of the previous 4.

I agree. Would love to see another one there.

I haven't had urge to play this new one in the last two weeks :(

Same; this is probably my favorite since Boxer. The last half in particular is just some of the best stuff they've ever done, IMO.

Spun this last night for the first time. I think it's pretty strong. This may be the album that sticks for me.

They covered KKK Took my Baby Away and it was really weird. It was a straight froward cover and it was just weird watching them play such a song.

I saw them last night with my kid in Detroit at the Masonic Temple. Great venue. The last time I was there was in 1994 for Pearl Jam.

In any event, the show was fine. Matt was hammered. He messed up about 4 songs, and missed the whole bridge and last refrain on Empire Line, walking out and never coming back. I think he was having issues with this voice -- at one point during Dark Side of the Gym he coughed audibly during the song. He did get better as the show went on though. We had 6th row center on the aisle, so the best part was during Terrible Love when Matt came into the crowd and started dancing with my son. It made his night.

On the whole, it made realize that with this album, I'm just not a fan of Walk It Back, Born to Beg, Guilty Party, or Carin at the Liquor Store. They're not bad, but do nothing for me. They're just there.

As for the shows, I've taken issue with this before, but man I wish they would get out of their comfort zone and play some different things to shake things up. They've been playing the same group of songs now for nearly 10 years. I get the new stuff -- they are promoting a new album. But maybe throw one or two different songs in between. I've seen Mr. November, Vanderlyle, and Terrible Love in the same encore since 2010 (15 times total). Yikes.

Anyway, here is last night's setlist:

1. Nobody Else Will Be There
2. The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness
3. Walk It Back
4. Guilty Party
5. Don't Swallow the Cap
6. Afraid of Everyone
7. Dark Side of the Gym (with Shara Worden)
8. Empire Line
9. Turtleneck
10. I Need My Girl (with Shara Worden)
11. Secret Meeting
12. Slow Show
13. Conversation 16
14. Bloodbuzz Ohio
15. Carin at the Liquor Store (with Shara Worden)
16. Day I Die
17. Fake Empire
18. About Today
______________________________
19. Born to Beg (with Shara Worden)
20. Morning Dew (Bonnie Dobson cover)
21. Mr. November
22. Terrible Love (with Shara Worden)
23. Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks

Saw them last night. Matt was also hammered, even throwing a drink out into the audience 2x getting a lot of people wet. Show was fine/good.

Saw them at the Belly Up in aspen and they did All The Wine twice and basically aborted it both times because Matt couldnt get the lyrics right and when he did he was laughing at them.

Theyre awesome live though.
