G4 here. I have FINALLY listened to NEW. I only have the PINK album but I really like this one. Okay. In another thread, it was talking of lyrics, I don't really listen to the lyrics. Yes they are important but I like the song for the way it is sung and the music. That being said, I found "Appreciate", "Everybody Out There" and "Road" to be my faves on this album.
The entire album sort of reminded me of "Flaming Pie" and a few others. Just teeny tiny glimpses of the album. But I totally enjoyed listening to this one. I sat outside with my CD player, my headphones, my drink and just sat there listening to the whole album and found I really liked it.
I think, for those who know me, the reason I don't care for Chaos and Memory (even though the majority of you do) is because I found most of the song depressing, TO ME, and because he was going through some things with "She Who Must Not Be Named" and the songs sounded depressing to me. Of course, that is only my opinion, but nonetheless, the songs sounded depressing.
These songs didn't. I thoroughly enjoyed this album and I will give it another listen. I did hear two of the bonus tracks from the BLUE album though and I did like those too. But those three songs mentioned above, I think, will be my faves on this album.
I said I would give a listen and I finally did. Thanks for pushing, Mr. H and Chris and others.
