Nice.
Good intro, particularly; it's something I've considered a lot lately.
Now where's the Copeland bio?!?!!!

I like it. A lot of stuff sounds similar to me though. Nothing will beat Clarity for me. Great Review though Steve!!!

Carry You and Dizzy are my favorite tracks. There are a couple I really don't like.

I've given it a few more listens and still can't get into this album. Again, I really think they miss Trombino.

i'm surprised "got to be someone's blues" didnt get a better review, maybe i'm just biased because i loved "disintegration", but gtbsb is my favorite song off the album, along with "carry you"

Very good review... I love the album through about 6 or 7 listenings, but I'll see if it sticks. "Dizzy" is undoubtedly one of my favorite songs this year.

This record is extremely disappointing. Almost all of the songs sound exactly the same, upbeat with no big choruses or great hooks. Where is the variety that was displayed with "Futures"? I always expect JEW to have a great album closer and while "Dizzy" is a good song, it can't even TOUCH "23". "Carry You" would have sounded much better slowed down and just acoustic. The only interesting songs to me are "Gotta Be Somebody's Blues" and "Here It Goes". I know they sound different with each record, so I have to commend them on that, but hopefully the next one will sound nothing like "Chase This Light".

why does everyone start at clarity when listing their albums...i still think static prevails is an awesome album, and i've only heard the single, despite an apparent leak...but it reminds me of parts of static
