Same here man. I found this album to be a lot more mature than Gospel. Considering most of the songs are about his dead dad that doesn't surprise me though.



I saw them live on The Greatest Generation tour. Sadly they only played Glowing Crosses, Flies on Tape, and One More Creature Dizzy With Love. I was a bit disappointed, similar to the poster above I absolutely adored the Back Window's Down and would have loved to of heard it.

@Greenpaw I read in an interview that the two guitarists write most of the lyrics. Looking at the lyrics, I'm pretty sure only Run Brother Run and the closer have lines specifically about the vocalist's father. There are other lines that mention one's father but the way they read, the framing of the words suggest they're about a living father. My guess is that the album as a whole is cumulatively about being in a tailspin, and not necessarily about the vocalist's father.



Just a thought
