Ill placed trust, promises rust
Oh yeah... that guy!
It feels really good to finally share this story with you all. I hope you are enjoying it!
Got the new Sloan album. But I'll have to spend some serious time with it before I can weigh in on it. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing, but let me tell you... this sucker is dense.
It isn't any longer than, say, the Barenaked Ladies' new double album. But somehow, having all 30 tracks on one disc with no division in the middle makes it much trickier to get a handle on. Thinking about it now, I'm pretty sure I ingested the new BNL one disc at a time... playing the first one several times and then moving on to the second. I guess I'm just programmed to absorb music in instances of roughly 12-tracks and 40 minutes.
I will say one thing, though... "Ill Placed Trust" needs to be a single. That track -- a hard, chunky rock song in the vein of "Money City Maniacs" -- is absolutely killer.
