    Nice reviews dudes! I agree with Jon about the missing things you have never seen. Most definitely got that feeling. Also with Matt’s line about the songs becoming indistinguishable, true but almost intentional for the whole.

    Matt, pick the album up again in about five-six months or so. That’s how long it took me to realize the genius of “April,” then I was hooked.

  3. Matt says:

    Dylan, I’ll definitely keep it around. After I was through with this one I picked up “Ghosts of the Great Highway” and I’m absolutely loving it. “Admiral” was just a little too…lonesome for me – at least for right now.

    I like Sun Kil Moon quite a bit, and I really wanted to like this album. But after a few songs it just starts feeling monotonous.
    Songs where it seems like he might be doing something different eventually make their way back to sounding like the rest.
    Not a bad album at all, I was just hoping for a bit more.
    The alternate version of 3rd and Seneca wasn’t all too different from the album version – which isn’t like Sun Kil Moon. Usually their alt versions breathe new life into the same song…. so much so that it doesn’t even seem like the same song. I just can’t say that with 3rd & Seneca.

    “I’ll Be There” was sweet, but it really didn’t seem that different from the original version. Not saying it needs to.
    But, I guess I was hoping for something that had that world of a difference feel – similar to how “Ocean Breathes Salty”seemed.
