    You and I are the only ones on this board who care, but I listened to it 3 times yesterday and really love it. Easily his best since Ringleader. Early favorites are Once I Saw The River Clean, What Kind of People Live In These Houses, and Knockabout World. Least favorite is The Truth About Ruth.

    What are your thoughts?

    you guys inspired me to listen to a bunch of his bigger songs the other night. I never got into him. I liked what i listened to, but it's hard to get into him now considering his politics.

    Good to see the new album received well, as well as the tour - my colleague went to see him last Friday in Leeds and had an absolute blast.

    Have you listened to The Smiths? I recommend giving any of their albums a listen first, all 4 (plus 3 compilation albums) are fantastic.

    He’s certainly taking the piss.

    Super bummed but also relieved that Fridays show in NYC got postponed. This is the first time since I've been a fan that I've actually been looking forward to hearing new songs live. No rescheduled dates announced yet.

    I don’t see myself listening to “The Secret of Music” more than once, unless it pops up on shuffle.

    I really dig that one. It's a very different style for him, and it works for me.

    Give this one a shot @bobbie solo

    Oh god, no! Please listen to this instead, it’s the closer from the new album: very sentimental.

    also @imail724

    Never Played Symphonies was ok. Got a little repetitive/meandering.

    Playboys - This seems like a very mainstream, probably very popular song/single. Very 90's. I really liked it.

    Secret of Music - yes, very different. It wasn't bad at all, but felt like background music.

    Hurling Days - Eh. Was ok. I can see why a major fan would like something like this though.

    This is one of his most ambitious songs, lyrically:



    When the gulf between
    All the things I need
    And the things I receive
    Is an ancient ocean
    Wide, wild, lost, uncrossed
    Still I maintain there's nothing
    Wrong with you
    You do all that you do
    Because it's all you can do
    Well, I was fifteen
    Where could I go?
    With a soul full of loathing
    For stinging bureaucracy
    Making it anything
    Other than easy
    For working girls like me
    With my hands on my head
    I flop on your bed
    With a head full of dread
    For all I've ever said
    Maladjusted, maladjusted
    Maladjusted maladjusted

    Would recommend just checking out some albums at this point. Like I said, anything by The Smiths is a solid starting point, and as for solo, give Bona Drag a try.
