Have to be honest - I haven't listen to the album for over a week now.  Whether the EP has anything to do with it I don't know, but it's yesterdays news.

Where on the other hand there hasn't been a day gone by personally without the album, bonus tracks or EP being played! Even on the go now in our beach hut!

I have listened to both every day - the last time this afternoon in the garden in the sunshine.   :)

Why is he so obsessed about telling people that he's only a songwriter nowadays.

Because people, journalists in particular, keep overlooking that (maybe most significant) aspect of his talent. Everybody keeps calling him the "great guitarist". There's nothing wrong with that; he is and certainly was a fantastic guitarist. But it must be annoying if people keep reducing you to this when you're actually one of the best songwriters in the history of songwriting.

And about the Nobel Prize: I think it's generally questionable whether a songwriter will qualify for that award, but at least today, Mark is a much better lyricist than Dylan is. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Dylan fan (also of his late work), but in terms of lyrics, he's really just pasting together whatever he finds in the books he reads. That's okay when it works (and it often does), but hardly Nobel-Prize-worthy. Whereas Mark deserves his Ivor Novello award more than ever.

Really? I didn't know that.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

And an even more important question: why journalists don't ask about the meaning of songs?

I think all of the bonus tracks are really worth to listen to. No skippers for me.
Since 4 weeks I've been  listening to Mark's new music every day.
This is all the heaven we've got, right here where we are in our Shangri-La.

Yep still listening to the 25 tracks each day with absolutely no skippers!

40 days after release....

I only listen to these songs:

1. Two pairs
2. Scavengers
3. Tunnel 13
4. Last Train
5. One Deep River
6. Living End (why not on the main album?)  :think
7. Nothing but Rain
8. Dolly Shop
9. Chess

Would be a perfect album for me with no skippers  ;D
