"Ooh, it's so good to see you, I couldn't wait another day"
I basically agree with the podcast's review - for a CT record -disappointing! I actually liked it ALOT less than you 3 did. BJ said it best, there are no GREAT songs on this record, just some good ones. And what a colossal bummer to not have any great songs on an album. Frankly, if I never listened to it again, it would be no big deal. Forgetful tunes all around.
FYI - As far as songwriting credits, songs can be registered to anyone in any order. They may have had nothing to do with the actual writing. It's possible they had an arrangement with the producer to give him a cut of the publishing for a cheaper price to produce. As well, band members could be cut in on the publishing for various reasons. I wouldn't read too much into the credits or the order.
As far as the review being negative, I (Ken) gave it a 10 out of possible 11, that is almost a perfect album
Give this a weak 6/10. They forgot the hooks on this one."Long Time No See Ya" is terrible.
BANG,ZOOM,CRAZY,HELLO, what a Rockin' Album, but I thinK on the next LP hopefully we will have more Original song's written by the band!:)
