After first listen, I thought this album was phenomenal. Just what we needed right about now! I love the collaboration and hope that continues. I think this will rank high among their best efforts. Great sound, great mix, great production!

I really cannot wait to see them live again.

This Forgotten Town is a classic!

Living in a Bubble is a perfect
Great keys here.

Ruby is very nice, and I'm glad it has been officially released.

Homecoming - Love the vibe and subject of this tune. Reminded me a bit of the Beatles.

Society Pages was pretty interesting as well.

Illuminate has a great feel and structure.

Across my Field is a beauty by Karen yet again.

Really loved Little Victories and Down to the Farm. Both sweet songs.


Bitter Pill is another classic. Absolutely love the guitar on this one!

Gary talks about the song here, which has an interesting origin story:

Looking up your Number, great melancholy tune by Tim.

I don't know what my top favorites are, so must listen a few more times now
There wasn't a single one that I didn't like.
