Yes, correct!

I'm less impressed with "Dandelion" the last couple decades or so. Not sure why. It was exciting "in the vinyl era" when it was hard to come by, but it hasn't stood up (IMO).


I feel the same way about 'Child Of The Moon' (still like it, mind)

Interesting! For me 'COTM' is more of just a sound, so it fades less easily than a clever song does. it's sort of their Byrds/VU moment. If it was recorded "better", I know I wouldn't like it as much.

Isn't " child of the moon " just Rain, but not as good?

Poll it!
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Play With Fire and The Singer Not The Song. They're all great though.
