Surprised by how low Stray Paper is and how high 1,000 Years is on everyone's lists.

It's because "1,000 Years" is great and "Stray Paper" is not great.

$100 for just the pre-show is still pretty ridiculous if you ask me. If the show ticket was included there I think it would be reasonable whatever aint gonna get too worked up over it if people with more money than sense wanna through money at these guys then good for Gaslight I guess

I agree. I like 1000 Years but that "It wasn't worth it" line makes me wince every time.

Underneath The Ground and 1000 Years should be wayy higher. I'd switch them with Selected Poems and Rollin and Tumblin respectively.
I do like that song, it might be able to move above Red Violins actually. But it's not one of the best tracks. It sounds like it's trying to be a National song with its various understated hooks. Just kind of reminds me how The National does it better...

Can't stand that line. I've said this elsewhere, but the second verse sets up for some cool philosophical finish and it's a massive let-down lyrically. Probably the lyric that irks me the most on this record, and it has its share of stinkers even though it makes up for those shortcomings in other ways.

Maybe I'm sleeping on 1000 Years... I really like the chorus and how the song finishes... Might be moving up on my list.

What was the issue with the pre-show thing, exactly? From what I could glean it all seemed like a cool package... And people were complaining because somebody could buy their way to the front of the line?

Fuck. I hope those people never try going to Disney World.

I enjoy the album, but I think the b-sides are my favorite
