After five live shows of the new material and innumerable hours spent recording, I still love this stuff. It gets time in the car cd player. This is different than all but one of my past recordings.
Playing the stuff live is really fun. It's scary too -- stretches me to the edge of what I can pull off, but it's great. It's loud, it's good. Christa says it's the tightest (most together for you non-music folks) I've ever sounded. In 23 years of making music. It's strange.
