I never listen to AFTW anymore. I'm going to change that immediately. I fell in love with that album the first day I listened to it.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

No, he just loves the worst songs from that album, save Snow Outside, Rooftop and Belly Full, which have been played in the last year or two.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

People complained that BW was played too much. This is a correction.

Or it was a failed attempt to capture lightning in a bottle twice, and served as a fan-service album that just wasn't quite there. It's a shell of what the other Lillywhite albums were and lacked real inspiration. So there was not much to grab hold of in terms of a song that the band just loved. So they never made a major rotation.

I've never agreed with Hilly so much. It's a weak album of weak material. It's not bad, but it's not good either.

Drunken Soldier needs a lot more play for me, though.

See, I love Drunken Soldier musically, but lyrically it puts me off in the same sort of cheesy way that Plastic Girl bothered me with the generic carpe diem themes.

DS music is great. Lyrics borderline ruin the song completely for me.

I wish the band would do instrumental takes on songs that don't quite resonate lyrically..Drunken Soldier is such a nice piece of music, it sucks that it has essentially been trashed

Now the problem is we have bad music with bad lyrics.

I never knew DS lyrics got so much hate. Always thought it was amazing studio and album.

Are Samurai Cop + Bismarck greater than your 2 favorite songs on AFTW? I think Dave would say yes.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

I really like Away From the World. It makes for a nice fall album.

I'd be cool with the following in regular rotation:

Mercy
Rooftop
Broken Things
Drunken Solider
Snow Outside
Belly Belly Nice

Sweet and Gaucho are good and I would put a level below "regular rotation". The rest would be nice to see sprinkled in sets here and there. Belly Full is harmless, but I don't need to see it in a main set. It works in the first spot of the encore though. If Only and The Riff I can take or leave. I like The Riff up until the guitar solo. I think that solo sounds incredibly cheesy.

Bolded are the only 3 I care to hear.

Bismark is one of those songs that Dave should have called up OAR and said, "I have a song for you guys."

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

Most of these songs just don't work in a large venue setting and never resonated with the audience. Almost all of the songs on this album spawn a massive crowd bathroom/beer run exodus. For a mellow song to work in a huge venue it needs to have great singalong lyrics and eventually morph into something dynamic (e.g. Grace is Gone, Typical Situation, etc.) Unlike previous efforts, most of the AFTW songs never really evolved in the live setting. It seems like the band didn't really feel like investing time into the songs and developing jams. I think it's obvious that Dave doesn't think highly of the record.

Drunken Soldier some hot dusty trash.

The only good songs from the album are Sweet and The Riff.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

The Riff, Broken Things and Snow Outside are excellent songs.

Drunken Soldier is very forced. Sweet and Belly Full are simple, enjoyable tunes.

Everything else on the album is ok, but If Only, which is a snooze fest, and Belly Belly Nice, which is a worse version of Shake Me or Seven.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

its easy for guys like hilly to dog AFTW. because he feels like the band did it with lillywhite to simply appease the fans. thats a no no and were awful for wanting it despite the fact that the bands best work came with him at the helm in that studio.

Re: Does Dave hate this album?

i personally love AFTW. it's one of the albums that i can listen to and not need to hear their live version more so. every other album, the songs appeal to me better live. i love AFTW songs live, but can listen to the album straight through and be satisfied.
