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!

"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.

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 (four months ago) link

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 (four months ago) link

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)

Feels cheap, but I voted for the first track.

Really this whole record is masterful. Can't wait for the next one. So far, he's two for two on this trilogy and it's improved with each record, so yeah!

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Monday, 1 July 2019 18:27 (three months ago) link

Voted for “All The Ways” too, and feeling all the richer for it!

breastcrawl, Monday, 1 July 2019 18:42 (three months ago) link

ended up voting for "the fall" bc it's such a cool song
