It’s in their top 3 and also one of my all time favourites.

Wow, where did ten years go? Still love the album just as much as when it came out.

Journal gig one of my faves from the times I've seen them. Privileged to see that and THB both in full!

Something I love about it is that between the demos and radio sessions you can build close to a complete acoustic version of the album and it still stands up very strongly (Marlon JD is fantastic acoustic and I much prefer the acoustic version of the title track too but perhaps that's just my Foo Fighters aversion!) A sign of good songwriting in my book.

I can sort of understand why they play it down from a personal level and it must have been an awful experience for them but Christ it's a great album.

Big shout out for Primitive Painters too, my favourite cover version of theirs(ok, maybe joint top with Red Sleeping Beauty).

Went to the Wolverhampton gig on this tour with my brother, & it was an epic gig, the fact that they played JFPL in full as a three piece Was amazing to see. Or of the 20 or 30 t Tim’s I’ve seen them, this gig would haave to be in my to 3, just wish I could have seen more on that tour, but am happy I got to see it once tbh. Amazing time to be a fan, such anticipation for this album.
