Re: Popular Problems - First Impressions

I just realised that Popular Problems sounds much closer to the sound of the Spector produced Death Of A Ladies Man then it does to other LC albums.

Re: The ending of Samson In New Orleans

Am I the only one that feels that the ending to this song was chopped off?

I think you're correct.

Re: Popular Problems - Album Reviews

I'm going to get 'pelters' for this on here but I don't like the production at all. It's lazy. The poetry and words are all Leonard's. But the rest? Amateurish. You Got Me Singing is the best track on the album. Why doesn't Leonard get his 'touring band' into the studio with him? All of these songs...

I'm really surprised at all the negative reviews on Amazon UK.

Re: Popular Problems - First Impressions

I'm stunned at the vocals on Popular Problems. This album IS NOT Old Ideas part 2 despite the fact that both album covers have some things in common. I was very pleasantly surprised as well. I don't know why, probably because the albums were released so close to each other... Well, close for Leonar...

The ending of Samson In New Orleans

The ending of Samson In New Orleans sounds like it's cut off. It ends so suddenly. It just sounds like it should have faded out instead of such a jarring ending.

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

The music and production just seems to fall far short of the usual genius lyrics. Not only on Popular Problems but on other LC albums as well. But then I listen to LC for the words and not necessarily the music. For me there has always been a huge disconnect between the lyrics and the music. Not on ...

Re: Pre release streaming in Europe...and worldwide

I am almost speechless... The production on this album is so bad it hurts.. And Leonard even ruined one of the most beautiful songs he has ever written: Born in Chains The album is actually so bad and my disappointment so huge that I might not even buy the album... Even "Death of a Ladies' Man" is ...

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

Just listened to the full stream of the album. My very first impressions are that the production gets in the way of my enjoyment of this record. My big beef is that the backup singers should be used as seasoning, and not as a main course. Maybe some time down the road, we'll get to hear a "Popular ...
