'When I take hallucinogens it’s usually for work' - Todd Snider

This is a great album.

This is a great record I find myself spinning constantly. Seemed like the first HWA was long on ideas and short on execution, but this one fires on all cylinders: Songwriting, production, band. Really well put together.
The contribution phase is coming to an end.

Not familiar with the HA. Just wanted to give a "what's up?" to Norty.

I can't stop listening to this album. Usually supergroups have a tendency to be less than the sum of their parts. That is definitely not the case here. These folks have some serious chemistry and this is a really great album.

Gagreed! Spins in my ears almost daily.

Favorite things about this album, in order.

1. Todd Snider.
2. The Drums (Never thought I'd say that about drummer people!)
3. The Dave Schools album production.
4. Jesse Aycock's slide geetar playing.
5. Neal Casal...

:drool:

It all just works.

What's up, D!

Still listen to this record every time I mow the lawn, daydreaming about playing electric guitar in a rock band

Heck, my 5 year old son couldn't stop singing "Opening Statement" earlier today. "You're gonna miss my laugh someday...."

Has anyone else listened to the new live album, We're All In This Together? It is fantastic.
