love it, classic kurt. although it kinda makes me wonder if he will make this type of music for the rest of his career. lets face it, the last 4 have all been pretty much cut from the same cloth, if he is ever going to make a real classic, 5 star album, i'm guessing its going to need to sound a bit different.
oh it leaked? Been looking forward to it. I got the feeling that this guy could make a classic album if he finds the right people, the feeling that he's on his way. hunchback, freeway, blackberry, my sympathy, amplifier(!)
the new album is pretty good. very understated with little in the way of discernible hooks. I think it's too early to rank an album that I first heard yesterday, but this is something I'll be coming back to a lot. the run from "On Tour" to "In My Time" is the best on the album, and the opening track, "Baby's Arms," is great.
