I liked his ep's more then his album. The album has some good stuff but it also gets a bit tiresome.

anyone jump into the new album yet? Overall I really like it, especially the title track and Life Round Here. DLM let's him shine at the piano and vocals, To The Last kinda gives me a neo-80's feel but I like it. Our Love Comes Back sounds like a b-side from the first album, but I ain't mad. Only song I'm not really feeling is the track with RZA, doesn't fit for me. Definitely looking forward to his show in May (although I will say the live versions of Retrograde aren't as exciting to me)
AND OH YEAH
he is playing Coachella this weekend and they will be streaming his set on Sunday while I am at work...praying to the youtube/internet gods that it gets recorded.

I don't get why I'm not feeling the album. Like, I like the songs and all but it just doesn't seem cohesive. And there's a few songs that are a bit of a letdown, yeah that Rza track and maybe another one or two. And it's super duper short!
He was dissing his own last record saying its all over the place, but if anything this one has no lineage. Or maybe because I hold the last record in such high light, like seriously, that 2011 year and that record forever changed the way I see music.
Or maybe its because I was watching live videos of these songs and was loving it and the studio ones just seem dry. All in all so far , I feel disconnected to the album but I like the songs, if that makes sense.

Wayyyy better live than on album. The arrangements come through a lot better imo. In fact the s/t tour wasn't as good as its own album but in this case its the opposite.
