    I haven't gotten into the lyrics yet, but I do like that banjo and Joe's playing in it. The more I listen, I sorta wish Joe had gone more acoustical with this song.

    I like it, but its not Sammys best ballad. It does'nt stand anywhere near the likes of "Returning of the wish", "Eagles fly" or "Love walks in". Sammys written alot of better ballads than this.
    I think the albums shining moment is "Different devil", some of Sammys best lyrics in recent years.

    Here's your comedy payoff......a buzzin' LowLife jamming his ear to the speaker (completely forgetting that I have headphones), playing CC about 5-6 times over, a full bottle of wine put away, listening for a fuckin banjo.

    Those are great songs. I still love 'em, but for me Sam raised the bar with CC. It's simply an expertly crafted tune from pretty much every angle. The lyrics (which we all know that Sam isn't a master of) hit the mark. The combined backing vocals of Mike with Monique Creber, Joani Bye and Linda Bye knocked the wind out of me. And then there is Satch's solo.

    Satch's. Fuckin'. Solo. Holy shitbiscuits.

    They nailed it on this one. Just my opinion, of course.

    Yeah, I have to agree with other sentiments already expressed: It's the standout track on the album. Gimme another month of listening and I'll probably vote it the best CF track in their short library so far.

    Sammy's lyrics are interesting- you can go through and think some of it is corney and then, bam! He hits you with something you feel compelled to think about, research and learn more about. In "Future In The Past", for example, "Let silence be my church." is an awesome line. There's a lot to think about in that little bitty phrase.

    I think this is some of Sam's finest work. In his entire career. But I've always preferred the singer Sam as opposed to the rocker. From his versions of Young Girl Blues and Whiter Shade of Pale to the above mentioned ROTW(probably his finest hour) and Not Enough. This song really speaks to me and the space I occupy right now.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I love coffee and sarcasm.

    Wasn't blown away by this song like Scum was but it's grown on me quite a bit. It's not one of those songs I will jump right to, but more and more when it's next on the playlist the volume goes up and I'm into it. I've really gotten to like it.
