Losing Days, Broken Piano, Four Simple Words, Oh Brother, all cookie cutter as fuck and saccharine and trite a la Mumford
maybe it's not 'better' per se but I really enjoyed the songwriting style of Love, Ire, Song so much more where Frank really had a knack for highlighting line after line, and I feel like his voice was much more a focus rather than just the simple, sort-boring guitar chords

"Four Simple Words is the best song I've ever heard. It makes me want to put my arms around strangers, do a funny little white-man jig in a circle, and then punch/be punched by those same strangers in the gut. If I had been listening to it in my car, my foot would have hit the accelerator and I would have been screaming "I want to dance" as my car flipped through the air. This song feels like my birthday, my graduation, and the day-after I lost my virginity all rolled into one. It's 9PM and the first thing I wanted to do when I heard is go get a tattoo. On my neck. This song is a cocaine-and-tequila fueled romp through Budapest on the 4th of July. This song could get the entire Fox News team to flip cars and throw bricks at the police. It's Rise Against crossed with Rancid. It's Against Me crossed with Less Than Jake. It's the day Scarlett Johannsen's nude pics leaked. It's....the best song I've ever heard."

@ Sanders:



I'm not taking his politics out of context. He identifies as a libertarian, which I believe is a thoroughly idiotic political philosophy. I'm not claiming him as a Tory, which is what The Guardian did last year. He essentially believes in the same philosophy that people like Ron Paul believe which, frankly, I think equates to a politics of complete irresponsibility. Has no impact on my opinion of his music, but it has nothing to do with the fact that he went to Eton on a scholarship either. If anything I find the fact that he went to Eton and ended up doing this makes him more appealing.

Politics should be for the people. If you think equality, fair go and helping the little man are irresponsible, well..

I like Frank a lot. I can relate to many of his songs. This record, like the few before it, has some filler. I tend to LOVE about 66% of his songs. My version has 16 tracks, a few of them bore me but I think 10 of them are really good. Very much worth owning.

@ Captain North:



What are you on about? Whatever it is cannot be libertarianism as libertarianism relies on the state

having as minimal a role in people's lives as possible. Without the state "the little man" will just

continue to get trampled on by the mega-rich as he is nowadays thanks to our obsession with

deregulated liberal economics.



If you like the idea of everyone being left to their own devices with no help if things go wrong then

yeah good for you, but I don't understand how you could not see it as irresponsible on some level.

I think you're confusing civil liberties with economic liberties

@ fish.



I know the difference between them, thank you. Libertarianism as a fully formed political philosophy

does not equate to "I believe in freedom and liberty" because, funnily enough, you can't run anything

on civil liberties alone unless you dispense with economics as a concept altogether.



Anyway, back to the album. It's still awful on second listen. One for the charity shop. Really

disappointed.
