I  haven't listened to it enough to categorize, but I do like "American Soul" a lot.

Mine still stands other than showman has been promoted and Love is bigger has been relegated. GOOYOW is a belter.

After quite a few listens, I'm really loving this album. My first listen...I honestly was a bit put off by some of it...but it is quickly redeeming itself. Still not the best album...nothing will ever beat AB or Pop, but it's a keeper!

Great:  Love is All We Have Left, Lights of Home, 13, American Soul, Red Flag Day, Summer of Love, Book of Your Heart, Blackout (it's going to be a lot of fun live, guys), Get Out of Your Own Way.....sheesh, I'm really loving on this album!
Good:  Little Things, Landlady

I still really can't get into "Best Thing" or "Showman".

Am I really the only person who absolutely loves Best Thing? It makes me laugh and sing and dance around the room!

I love You're The Best Thing!  It's in my "great" category.  A perfect, fun U2 pop song.  I think of it as an Angel of Harlem type song done with 90s sonics.  Plus my four year old loves to sing and dance to it, and I've been known to join her.  You're not alone riffraff!

The whole album is in the "great" category for me, actually, except Get Out of Your Own Way, American Soul, and The Blackout.  They go in the "good" box.

Thanks...I was starting to think there was something wrong with me! I love that you dance around with your little girl, too...I used to do that with my Dad.
