tfw "lake by the ocean" enters the wormhole at the end of the middle eight

god, Brad, I was listening to this album in the shower today.

"Gods," I think.

such a great album. between all the ways and gods for me. the only song that isn't excellent is III.

I haven't listened to the whole album since it was new, but "Lake By the Ocean" was in my Top 10 of that year.

“Lake” was one of my favorite singles of that year too, but damn, how crazy good is “All the Ways Love Can Feel”?

his best opener imo

agreed, and "get to know ya" and "bad habits" are both phenomenal

counterpoint: the horns

"Lake by the Ocean" barely over "Lost", which feels like it was meticulously crafted in a lab to sound as if Al Green's "How Do You Mend a Broken Heart" was re-imagined to channel "She's So Heavy" and "Tea For One"

Hostage for me. love his phrasing on it. so much depth in the mix. sublime when the drums kick in. best climax on the album.

Gods is #2 for me. The back half of the album is perfect. ok so is the front half.

btw, thank you Brad for starting this thread. I’d never have known I needed Maxwell back in my life this very day!

"gods" stole my heart when it was just a snippet he uploaded to soundcloud tho i will cop to still preferring that version

"all the ways love can feel" > "bad habits" is not a train i will ever be able to hop aboard

I always loved it but I swooned to its moist groove and forked falsetto when I heard it on the way to his Hollywood show in October 2018.

the horns are the best part of this album

Didn’t say it wasn’t good, just not excellent. The groove/melody puts me on edge, not quite sure why, while the rest of the album is like taking a warm bath

Jeff the grown man (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 11:55 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i feel that, it's def the sharpest-sounding song here. also i was mainly making a bad counterpoint joke

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 14:26 (two weeks ago) Permalink

nah the counterpoint is valid, the horns do sound great, and they aren't in the song enough imo

i find this to be true of part one as well (well, it's the horns + chris dave)

Oh, I booked the first seat available on that train
