well, you were right about the Johnson vocal cross of Lou Reed and Cohen. But
I don't see the point of comparing because of time. Maybe then, but now? pfft

Coomer: Jeff was becoming a better writer. I think some of it, and this is an outside opinion, yet an inside opinion, was like, Jeff was always looking for new music to excite him. I don’t think Jay ever bought a record past the first Dinosaur Jr. He knew old country.

Barham: This is the first record where you really start seeing bands start to branch from that root system. It’s very clear that Tweedy is going one way and Farrar was going the same way Uncle Tupelo was always going. Uncle Tupelo was always Farrar’s band, in my opinion.

Yeah but it is a notorious slacker of an album, U.T. - Anodyne I wrote a review of Mike Johnson - "Where Am I?" and I should compare them as similar albums.

Jay's singing in those days was without peer. Fifteen Keys is a nearly perfect song, in my opinion. I thoroughly enjoy every second of it.

For me, music can be like spending time
with an old friend that I haven’t seen in a while.
Refreshing. And I’m grateful for the time.

And man, The Search tour
Oh, you talking about those things going in concert.
I own Anodyne. I think it's boring compared to Trace,
Straightaways, and Wide Swing Tremolo

But it does have two,great songs on it + Chickamuga :x

And man, The Search tour with Derry and that material.
I was so pumped I left SoCal for Austin and Stubbs on a humid
night.
Special times. Just looking forward to the new Jay work
by looking backwards
It’s been too quiet around here, like for a decade haha
Riding waves of sound...just your life that you don’t own
Madness of love meets the organ grinder
