Shit, that was classic Bill comedy gold.

awkward tuning/song intro
awkward Jesus reference
awkward internet reference

awkward swear fest to distract from fuck up
awkward silence
finally song comes.....awkward boring song

Am I the only one who likes this song?

It sounds really good to me...

Also... a sign that things are moving in the right direction... he played "In the Arms of Sleep" - probably the best song he's ever written

As happy as I am that he played In the Arms of Sleep, I don't really like that thing he does when he rushes syllables... the pacing of his delivery on the album is perfect... that's the one thing he just shouldn't fuck with when he plays live (for all songs, not just this one)

Probably. How does this prove things are going in the right direction? Which part of this song can make you think his song writing/lyrics have gotten better?

yeah, i was thinking the same thing.. He's been doing that for the last 3 or 4 years now. It's almost like he doesn't trust his ability to sing like he did on the older albums anymore.

Hmmm, sounds like a C#7/Ab ?

EDIT:
It sounds like a 7th chord with a lower 5th bass note, but there's some oddly tuned open strings in there.

pretty mixed, although I'm surprised that some of the usual gushers think it's an abortion.

a bunch of you guys really loved the acoustic residency songs that I thought were mostly rudimentary, so I thought there might be some love for this.

Arms of Sleep just blows away all the new crap he's written.

I actually didn't mind that song too much. I didn't try to pay attention to the lyrics.

but then listening to ITAOS afterwards made it seem not as good

and holy crap billy actually sounds INTO these songs.

why wont he just go solo? :(

I see "to Sheila" on the setlist... do we have a recording of that?

it's a C7/G. nothing crazy happening there. if anything, he's leaving the B string open, which turns it into a C7add7/G.
