mgolia6 I wouldn’t expect anything less than a stellar review and unique perspective from Jmart on a process that is already challenging to begin with: trying to encapsulate what this band creates on a given night with something as fleeting as the English language. What he also accomplished, which was no small feat, was a series of responses that elicited positive conversation and implored the reader to engage in healthy conversation with the narrator and others. Success, my dear Jmart, success indeed.

Now I want to call out, and maybe it already has been noted but there is an evolutionary dance that exists that meshes two dance sequences together, similar to the way the band segues (whether expertly or not) from one song to the next and that is when the Disappointed dad becomes the all out rager ala songs like Bug or even, dare I say, Number Line. This is when the initial reaction to any given song is at first negative until about four minutes in and then you remember why you in fact you love this band for al their warts and pimples and sunny skies. And the song in fact starts raging.

Thanks for an amazing write up!!
