The song is fine but it shouldn’t close the record
I think it's a great closer. Like a jolly end credits.
Definitely wouldn’t have been sold on “Back In The Van” as a closer had I not read the post below. I think it’s a perfect way to describe the album ending on that note, despite “Coffees And Cigarettes” being the perfect “closer”
I feel like this would be a top five record for me this year if they'd put it out in the middle of summer. Still really like it, but I would have played the shit out of it in July/August.
Yeah I still stand by the “end credits” statement... it’s like the album is a emotional journey through a period of growth in Martin’s life, and “Back in the Van” is the sound of coming out the other side of that with a renewed love for life. The perfect closer imo
Still can't get over how good "Photograph" is.
"Do You Think About Us?" is still my favourite song of the year.
Once in a Lifetime is still WAYYYY up there for me.
I also ended up playin' the remix version of Outfield more than the original, haha. Love the extra bombastic drums.
Back In The Van is definitely a Huey Lewis throwback.
No more "Back In The Van" slander please. Works great.
cocaine... cocaine is how you explain this
the accuracy....it's amazing
Yeah, this feels like one that come next summer, I'm going to look at my list and go "why wasn't this higher."
Given that, I'm going to put it higher. I love this album.
It's still in my top 15, but I just didn't really have the "summer soundtrack" album this year, and this would have been so perfect. I can imagine myself bringing this back into rotation in a big way come May or June.
Dude's been sober for years
in the Outfield, do y'all hear the line as "the only one who gives me head"?
He looks like an emo Tom Brady.
Every goddamn time.
Goddammit....... now I do.
Speaking of wrong "The Outfield" lines... the lyrics say "hard to get" at the end of the bridge, but when it echoes out it sounds just like he said "hard to guess."
Lol when I sing along, I say it as "hard to geth"
Yeah... the de-essing on that is pretty ridiculous lol
Yeah this is easily one of my favourite albums of the year.
