I'm torn between 'Heartbreaker', 'Love is Hell' and '29'
but it's usually between Heartbreaker, Cold Roses and Love Is Hell.
I went back to Cardinology today, having not listened to it in full for a few months. It doesn't hold up too well against his other stuff, but it's not as bad as I first thought either.
definatly a grower.
"Crossed Out Name", "Cobwebs" and "Stop" are among his finest.
"Natural Ghost" lets the side down though - and why the hell did Lost Highway not put "Memory Lane" on the standard track-listing?!
gets better and better with every listen. Cold roses is his finest work though.
is among the best things i've ever experienced in my life. and I don't say things like that often.

heartbreaker's got some brilliance on it but I think it's got the worst end to an album evah. don't you just think that after 'Come Pick Me Up' it just seems to go to sleep?

Oh, dude. I totally disagree. I mean, "Sweet lil' Gal (23rd and 1st)" is one of the finest album closers I have ever heard, and "In My Time of Need" is a wonderful slice of song-writing. I think the second half of the record is as good as the first.
but then the occasional track would pop up when I had my iPod on shuffle, and I'd appreciate how good they actually were, taken out of the context of the album. Then when I went back and listened to the record as a whole it all made so much more sense.
But yeah, 'Come Pick Me Up' is definitely where it peaks.
cold roses in the sun.
but the 'Live @ The Tractor Tavern' bootleg wins it.
