Contrary to what seems like near universal opinion I like this new album quite a bit.

Everything now and put your money on me are absolute top shelf. I really like sign of life, we don't deserve love, and Peter Pan. Creature comfort is good. Good god damn, electric blue and chemistry are fine. The infinite content and bookend pieces can be annoying.

I might put this one above reflektor and neon Bible (well... maybe not NB)

Absolutely.

Even "Everything Now" has grown on me.

:thumbsup: Creature Comfort, Deserve Love, Everything Now

Funny enough the opening run of Everything Now --> Signs of Life --> Creature Comfort is my favourite starting run to any album this year. Sad it loses its way from there.

Yeah that sounds reasonable. Then jump to the last two tracks.

After some real initial disappointment, I can now get on board with this. Those are the only 5 songs I listen to as well. The rest are really awful though.

The tour has been selling terribly. San Diego seats were probably 1/2 empty. I read it's been like that at most cities. They are no longer an arena band though not sure they ever were really.
