I just read that and now I really want my CD to be here now! Sounds bloody lovely.

I can tell I'm going to be listening to this album a lot over the next few weeks - I've listened to it about five times already since I got back to Glasgow earlier. It's been a while since I've reached the end of an album and felt compelled to hit 'play' and listen to the whole thing again.

Those whose albums haven't arrived yet can console themselves with this:

We're all biased, Nat. We all love Andy as much as you do!

I'm like Colin with this album. I keep listening to it again and again and discovering little pretty things that I'd never noticed before. It's so brilliantly put together - everything about it is bright and clever and sweet.

I've had Cross the Line in my head all flippin' day. It might have been the only thing keeping me sane.

I've had "Not Going Out" in mine since last night. At the time i WAS out, that can't be right can it?

That's how good the album is, Mark. Similarly, I've been talking to a vicar all day about having sex with rodents.

Anyone care to nominate a favourite song from the album so far? I can't stop listening to Sweetness and Light. At first I just liked the tune (and the way it starts in the middle of a sentence), but I listened to the words properly earlier and they're brilliant and really quite touching, especially the last verse. Andy writes some cracking lyrics, doesn't he?

I also just noticed I'm in the Indietracks group photo in the middle of the booklet. I look like a club doorman in it.

Thats this picture right?

it's like an Anorak who's who.

I guess, having listened to the recording of the show, this is the picture Emma took for her mum. if so, who's the 5 people doing the sign of rock ?!?
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

I like them all, of course, but Fleeting Moments and Cross the Line are my favourites. I think. Cross the Line is one of my favourite songs of the last few years. It's perfect.

I've no idea why Pocketbooks aren't bigger than they are. Dan's clearly holding them back.

I know!! I have been holding back from posting about all those brilliant words, I tend to get told off for not valuing the music enough sometimes! But the way 'Sweetness and light' starts, oooooh, it makes me swoon each and every time. In fact sometimes I just restart the song before it's through just to hear it again. But then 'Fleeting moments' is just perfect from beginning to end, too. And 'Camera angels', I remember hearing that for the first time on the platform at Indietracks. If I weren't happily married I would have the hugest crash on Andy, I would.
You beside and bluer skies above me

I think Outskirts of Town is my new favourite.

This hour, anyway.

Fleeting Moments is my favourite at the moment. Just lovely.

I'm trying to think which Jam song Paper Aeroplanes reminds me of.

It's more likely to be The Style Council.

Wow ... thanks for all the kind words on the album. I don't know what to say.

Mine just came, so my nomination for favourite song shall be coming at a later date. Very much enjoying it so far.

It's been a while since I've played an album so much on repeat.
It's great.
Favourite song at the moment : "I'm not going out".
Great lyrics too !
