New Ghost dates. Finally got Chicago in there, but it falls on my son's birthday. I've seen them twice already. Might have to be a good dad and skip it.
Hmm, Sacramento is closer, but I have a buddy out in San Jose. Either way, I'll be going. I already went to Riverside earlier this year, but I bet they're going to add more new tracks to the set.

Yeah, Faith is a pretty heavy one; I just think it needs another. It’s a little short for me and a bit on the lite side. One more heavy tune would balance it for me.
Yeah, I wouldn't have minded that either. Did you get a chance to hear the 2 cover versions on the deluxe album? If not, I have some download codes I can give out.

I’ve given the album two good listens since it came out today.
It’s pretty good but i have a few complaints.
-First, at 40 minutes it’s a little short, especially considering 3 of the tracks are instrumentals.
-We already heard the best songs before we even had this. Rats and Dance Macabre are just incredible tunes, but the drop off to the next tier of songs is steep.
-Too ballad heavy. It needs a Mummy Dust-type rocker. If it had one more heavy tune, it solves all three of these issues.
It’s ballsy having two full-length instrumentals. I like that courage. 30 years later i’m still waiting for Slash to have that type of courage.
Is Faith not in the same vein as Mummy Dust? That song fuckin rocks my socks off.
This record is such a weird collection of tunes, but I love it. I have been listening back to back since Thursday.
Miasma is fucking awesome as well. I want to take some LSD and float through space to this song haha. Witch Image is really great as well.
I really feel like this album is a Sonic landscape of synth and guitar, with Tobbe using his voice as an instrument as well with the heavy layering of vocals.
I need to give it some more listens before I can say where it falls on Ghosts discography, but I am heavily digging it.
