I have to agree. I think the highs of BTF/UTF are higher, but Warpaint is more concise & more consistent.
Since we're talking about it, songs from that era I hold in the Pantheon are:
Good Morning Captain
Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution
Kept My Soul
A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound
Movin' On Down the Line
What Is Home
What's scary is, when you go back and dare to listen to the two albums nobody seems to really like, you find the same thing ruins a lot of those songs. Goodness Gracious!
: In retrospect:
: Warpaint turns out to be pretty damn good.
: BTF/UTF has great moments but is has too much filler.
: With both releases, Chris Robinson is the weakest link, from his lyrics ("Oh Josephine, your eyes are blue"; "The fox jumps over the hollow log" makes me think of the typing class exercise "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog") to his arrangement contributions, like the moany open to Greenhorn.
