I would have liked to hear a full Rivers demo of Magic. Catchy enough chorus that a song around it could have been pretty decent I think.

Blue album chorus and catchy verses make up for how meh it is lyrically. It's not one of their best songs but if we're talking post Maladroit it's a very low bar to clear.

If only they had recorded in album in 97/98. Those songs were solid gold.

There isn't a single second of Cuomo material after the Homie/RCB stuff that touches the Sweeney chorus imo. Is that really that crazy?

Yeah the verses are bad but not bad enough where it ruins the single best thing he's written in the last 17 years.

As opposed to something like Dreamin' which sounds right but sucks the whole way...

Decent article but I reaaaaaaaally disagree with some of those opinions. Only in Dreams, Surfwax, c'mon. At least she loves Maladroit and Waiting on You.

I disagree...Make Believe is just awful. Hurley isn't nearly as embarrassingly bad, but it's just so nothing.

Memories has a decent chorus and that outro bit, too bad the verses are just horrendous.

Precisely. Same with Maladroit. It's aiming lower than the first two but at least it hits the nail on the head wrt what it was going for.

As much as I love Pinkerton I don't think it's a stretch to say Waiting on You would've been top 2 on the album. Some incredible bsides to those first two records (and actually some decent Green...

Maladroit isn't close to on par with their 90's output, but it's far from a bad record. It's stupid and fun and loud and unlike everything that followed, it has some pretty good songwriting...

Exactly. "We're gonna be good like we used to!" sung over more crap doesn't suggest anything to me beyond this band still somehow not understanding what made them good in the first place.
