    It’s amazing album….

  2. The new DD album is actually really good, there are 5 tracks that absolutely kill. “The Man Who Stole a Leopard” has to be one of the best songs they’ve ever done.

  3. Agree about Leopard, but I don’t like the ‘news story’ at the end. Just let the music play, and let Simon’s voice carry us out. I hope they release a version w/o that.
