Insta-skips

So the album's been out for a couple months now. Which songs, if any, are "insta-skips" for you? I know this thread is going to be sort of 'negative' by nature, but I thought it would be interesting to see people's thoughts.


For me, my hand always has a tendency to jerk itself violently to the "next track" button in my car for these three songs:

-- Can't Stop

-- Here on Out

-- Come Tomorrow

    Re: Insta-skips

    If I was listening in the car on a drive I'd skip Here On Out, Come Tomorrow and When I'm Weary. I enjoy the rest of it for the most part (Samurai Cop is a -1 for me live but I like it as an album opener)

    That's the exact same thing I do. I haven't heard the other songs in a while now. I've still only listened to the first 30 seconds of When I'm Weary.

    Re: Insta-skips

    I think there's only been one post with "She" on it.... Let me be the 2nd, as it is quite possibly the worst DMB song ever written.

    Every single song off of the "Everyday" album is superior to "She"

    I like the majority of the new album too, just cannot get over how bad the aforementioned song is...

    Re: Insta-skips

    TGIY, She, and CT. I don't even dislike the songs, I would just prefer to listen to literally anything else when they come on

    I feel a little badly about She because I do think that it's a genuinely good song, it just reminds me of other songs on the record that are better so then I just listen to those, instead. Ya know? But TGIY and CT make me skip to a new artist entirely.

    Same response for me. Title track is absolute garbage. I can tolerate can't stop but replace both of these songs and we have a top notch album coming close if not matching the top three.

    IMO, they'd need to replace about 12 of the 14 songs on the album if they wanted to come close to the Big 3. This album is much closer to Stand Up than it is the Big 3.

    Come Tomorrow is really the only one that I think is truly awful on the album. And I don't really count bkd as a song.

    Gotta save those extra 26 seconds for something important, huh?

    For me personally, I start the album at track #2. Samurai Cop is an okay song, but I am sooo sick of it by now. After that, I usually only skip TGIY and CT.

    It's not close to Stand Up at all. So much better.

    Instead of manually skipping tracks, I made a playlist of the album and removed Can’t Stop, That Girl is You, She and Come Tomorrows. If I just ignore this tracks, the album is pretty pretty good.

    Unfortunately, it is not much better than Stand Up or Big Whiskey. At least to my ears.

    Re: Insta-skips

    There aren't really that many for me. In some strange weird way I've really grown to just love this record. IDK why cause when I first listened I couldn't wrap my head around it and disliked most of the songs. Now I can't stop listening to most of them. But WIW is an instant skip, as is TGIY. But that's about it for me.

    She and Come Tomorrow.

    I don't like Can't Stop, but I can tolerate it. Same for TGIY now and then. I probably haven't heard When I'm Weary since the week the album came out because I basically just turn it off or flip to something else once Come Tomorrow starts. Nothing against it in particular but then again don't feel like I'm missing much.

    Honestly, for how much I loved Samurai Cop at first, it's kind of like Crash now. I know it's a good song. I don't need to hear it every time I put the album on. I just go straight to Can't Stop and let it rip .
