He played Four Simple Words last time I saw him and the crowd went fucking apeshit. Gimmicky or as cheesy as you may think they are, they take on a whole new dimension when played live.

I agree Jom, the band sound great. They're also fantastic live

As for future ratings, I imagine that mine might well settle on a 4 in the long term, but as there are songs still growing on me it'll stay this way for me for some time

Four Simple Words was really great live John. Went the fuck off here. I never thought I'd agree with Aids so vehemently but here I am doing it. I feel like adding the full band kind of took away from Frank's charm and that's why I've liked his releases post LI&S significantly less than his first two, but lyrically he's just so excellent that I can't help but love a lot of his newer work too. It doesn't have quite the resonance of some of his earlier material but stuff like Peggy Sang The Blues, I Am Disappeared, Broken Piano and The Way I Tend To Be are still all amazing songs.

"hey jon,

thanks for the mail and the kind words in the review, appreciated, and never apologise, an opinion is yours to hold. see you on the road sometime, hope you're well.

ft"

(the "never apologise" bit was because I said I mentioned lyrics I wasn't a fan of)
