The new album is pretty great.. I liked it straight away. Looking forward to spinning it a dozen more times!

Are you guys into it?

It's ok. I mean, he's patently capable of better and maybe he's damned by his past and by fans who recall that past but I still feel it's only ok. It's a shame but by now I think I have moved on from him at this stage and only take a passing interest in what he does now.

That's fine.. I still love it. I do kind of agree with you that he could do better, but I think he might pull those kind of songs out later, he has a few unreleased albums too that he's thinking about putting out.

Just curious, what are your fav. albums of his?

Apart from the Whiskeytown stuff which I think is essential RA listening? Definitely the solo debut, Heartbreaker. The collected Love Is Hell is vastly underrated. Jacksonville City Nights is excellent. Then you can cherry pick because often on even poor albums there will be one or two real gems.
