no idea what Yoni Wolf contributed, but damn.

it's alright but i think i'll like it more in the context of the album, on its own like this it doesn't quite have the weight that this sort of big power-ballad thing seems like it should?

I like it a lot. I think it'll sound even better in context.

the groove change in the second half is so unexpected and amazing

loving the ambition and what this does with rhythm, favourite thing is whatever on earth the drums are doing throughout the first half

based on the two new songs i'm excited for this to outdo nearer my god

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 15 April 2021 14:24 (three months ago) link

so far i'm intrigued but i think i'll like them both in context of the album

wasn't expecting them to make an arcade fire song

weird/fun chord progressions on that one, I confess I haven't been straightforwardly bowled over by the new songs like I was "slapstick" or "nearer my god" but I am still cautiously optimistic

how could you be lukewarm about this one!!!!!

I'm listening back to all the singles now, I guess I mainly just don't find their synth/electronic sounds very interesting and the mixing/production hurts my ears at times, I miss the warmth and spaciousness of the previous records (there is a bit of this on "speak with the dead" at least)
