    So true....the drummer, Bryan Devendorf, is in a class by himself. He really carries the band. Nobody drums like him. Bloodbuzz is a great example.

    Thanks youtube for adding commercials after every song and ruining this video. It's great studying or writing and having to stop every four minutes to skip your stupid commercials.

    Greater Universe since THE NATIONAL. If music guides you through your life, its hard not to acknowledge that they already delivered half of your life's soundtrack. But the great piano and the Violine are missing huge, I couldnt identify the brass...everybody got sick upsidedown ? Bloodbuzz was a bit of weak ? Drinking is not an entertainment, its a strange habit killing you softly... I know that.

    One of the best live gigs on GRbuild IMHO Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks - Before I read the lyrics I genuinely thought he was singing "I'll explain everything to the geese". I think it was the line about "swans are a swimmin'" that made me think that. I prefer it :-)
