Thoughts after a few days and lots of listens.

- The song quality is about on par with their previous major-label LPs, which is to say excellent. There are two cuts I don't care for much: "The Night...

Getting a slight Radiohead vibe after the first listen. "Rows" is awesome.

Yeah, I was gonna say... if he'd growled his way through Oh, Hello or Semi Constructive Criticism, people would be saying the same thing about those. But they're perfect as they are.

Big surprise, Joe Barresi the destroyer. I'll never forgive him for ruining Fair to Midland's last album.

On the other hand, I'm not so sure the final product of The Afterman is much better. The mix...

Domino is unquestionably their finest moment since Good Apollo IV, IMO. My only quibble is the ridiculously loud mastering, which leads to lots of really grating clipping on the heavier Afterman...

Well said. I think it's just how his voice has changed as he's aged, so I don't fault him at all, but it just doesn't sound as good as it did on the first two records in particular.

I might be in...

Been legit waiting for this album since the day SSTP leaked in like August 2006. Hope the first single drops soon. I have total faith in these dudes back under this moniker, even though Water &...

Longtime PT fan here who's followed his solo work with some interest. A few thoughts:

- It's definitely poppier than Raven overall, but it's still more obviously rooted in 70s prog than I was...

Completely agree. Very slow start but the second half kept my attention at least. Will reserve judgment for another couple episodes.

Sure haven't seen much evidence of it in the music I purchase and listen to, but I'll be on the lookout.

Regardless, there are a bunch of records I cherish from the last 10-15 years whose vinyl...

"She Spider" is pretty solid. I don't know, I just feel like most of the tracks from "Symmetry" through "She Came Home" are kind of vanilla pop-rock in the context of their whole catalog. This band...
