: I think the highs of BTF/UTF are higher, but Warpaint is more concise & more consistent.
I strongly agree with this.
How do you feel about Fork In The River? When I revisit BTF/UTF, that's the one I seek out more than others.
: 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
: Shady Grove
: A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound
: Movin' On Down the Line
: Whoa Mule
: 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.
: : Discuss.
