Hence DDN being the 'perfect' SY album - all 3 writers were on killer form throughout. Hence the chap a couple of messages back saying his fave track is Rain on Tin (good call btw) but that Murray Street as a whole is a 7.
I totally get what you're saying. I've always wanted more Lee, on just about everything. Lately he's been relegated to 1-2 songs. Kim songs can be the worst, but many are the best (Sweet Shine, Sympathy for the Strawberry, Cross the Breeze). But I hear you.
