yup. I’ve actually gone back to them the last week or so for the first time in a bit.
I went and listened to Automatic again (after reading tQ article). I always treated it with a bit of disrespect. It’s the big album, with all the big singles you overhear, and I couldn’t bear to listen to Everybody Hurts again. But, it’s a great album and it felt fresh to hear it again.
I’ve also had Chronic Town on repeat. Mainly because I found a playlist somebody made on Spotify which has the version with the different vocal take on Gardening at Night. This is the version that was on the RSD vinyl copy I got a few years ago. It’s the version off Eponymous. Does anyone know which is the original version? Why does my RSD vinyl have a a different vocal? Did the band end up preferring it and used that instead?
