Anyone Else Just Thrilled To Tears?

I've been laughing and crying since my first listen, on each subsequent listen.

I just can't believe its THIS good. My long time love affair with this band was admittedly suffering a bit over the years as I began believing they didn't have it anymore...they couldn't write the beautiful music they used to.

Oh...yes they fucking can.

    Re: Anyone Else Just Thrilled To Tears?

    As I said in another thread, I love how this album has got me saying "This song is my favorite, no this song is my favorite, no THIS song is my favorite." Because all the songs are honestly amazing.

    I could not be more thrilled/ satisfied with Away From The World. A killer album

    Also, my desire to listen to this album over and over again is an awesome feeling.

    Not to tears, necessarily. But I have been in a euphoric trance for the past 20 hrs. Just floating. This is really great stuff.

    Re: Anyone Else Just Thrilled To Tears?

    I was VERY skeptical of this album... I was concerned that it could never live up to the hype surrounding it with Lillywhite being involved. But it's absolutely amazing. Far better than anything that they've done since the Lillywhite Sessions. I LOVE all of the positive feedback on the boards. It's rare that we see everyone agreeing on something and for the most part all of the threads are amazingly positive. Love Snow Outside, The Riff, and Drunken Soldier. So many great tunes on this album...

    This album is great and everything, but if I was laughing and crying about it, I might ask my family to remove any sharp object from the room and call in the professionals.

    Re: Anyone Else Just Thrilled To Tears?

    This album could be amazing just listening to an instrumental version of it. So I think that alone stands up as, well to put it Joe Biden's way "This is a big fucking deal!" This also i think this is the first time where and album hasn't peaked till the end. All the closing songs of their previous albums were good, but not great. But i think the masterpiece of it all, closes the album. The epic way it opens, and the mellow trance it ends in, just puts the star on top of the tree. I love it!

    I noticed this and it makes listening so interesting and so much better. Every song has a different and unique vibe like you said.

    This album just has so much in it. Definitely the best since 1998!!

    There are elements that they haven't ever used and some topics that haven't been touched on with beautiful new lyrics.

    The top story from this album for me is that Boyd is back. Besides his wonderful solos he contributes so much more to the verses and choruses. His lines are beautiful and fit in where a violins sweetness should. This is the counter to the driving horns and electric guitar.

    Almost a perfect album

    Oh when Drunken Sailor hits with the music from the teaser up top after the 44 minutes leading up to it, everything I held in just flowed. I was cracking up and crying at the same time during the first listen. Lying on my bed, earphones full blast, I just couldn't believe how awesome the run-up to the end is, and how he just pushes it over the edge. Definitely lived up to the hype.

    So you're saying that Proudest Monkey and Spoon, at the very least, aren't great?

    I have a feeling this album is going to age like wine. already looking forward to listening to it in the fall and winter seasons too. i can imagine hearing the end of drunken soldier with the lights glowing on the christmas tree.

    this album is what i was HOPING FOR when Big Whiskey came out. BWGGK has its positives, but this is what I (and probably many others) were hoping for in 2009, and even since BTCS or the Lillywhite sessions. Amazing album, "Big 4" is an honest discussion at this point.

    Snow Outside is begging for me to cry...it has almost got me too. This is so beautiful

    If you are tired I will bare your burden
    If you're dreaming, I will not disturb you
    Whatever your heart desires and love, love
    I'll clear the way for you
    Come winter I will build you a fire
    From the bones of who I used to be
    Before you came and washed the weary away
    Before you came here for me

    I almost want that tattooed on my shoulder
