I’d give wild flag 7/10, either way it was loads better than corin’s solo stuff for me.
I do not disagree. Corin’s solo records are straight up mom rock.

Wild Flag was mediocre…let’s be honest. I don’t expect the new album will come anywhere near the excellence of The Woods, but I’m really looking forward to hearing what they’ve created. “Bury Our Friends” is a decent track. Good guitar; kind of repetitive structure; Carrie needs to lay off the affected vocals she started putting on during One Beat; the production reminds me of All Hands On The Bad One (same producer, I know); Janet’s drumming is as tight as ever; Corin still has that great commanding voice.
That kind of thing really pisses me off, though. It’s a feeling I personally have all the time. Like, the only way I can survive in a situation is by clenching my fists to hide my painted nails. I actually find myself doing that sometimes just in case someone would give me a hard time for being gay or feminine — maybe no one would — but someone might. So it pisses me off that I still feel like that at 32. I’m 32, and I still feel meek and apologetic about who I am. In a way, I’m ashamed that I’m not 100 percent there. But I want and need to to be 100 percent there— hopefully for me and other people.
