I just listened to this, and parts of it are good and parts of it are as cringe worthy as anything.  But big ups to him for creating and putting stuff out in the world.  Just because it's not my taste doesn't mean I'm gonna get worked up over it.  Gonna listen a few more times.  Took a few times for me to warm up to Kasvot and GOTF too...

Listened to the whole thing once. As an endurance test it makes the cut. And that's a problem, because  I hate endurance tests.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

I'm into it.
Surprising at how readily you guys write things off.

It's definitely dad rock, but I've enjoyed Trey's Quarentunes. Every day when he posted a new video I watched it at least twice. Some of the songs are pretty catchy, some are a bit sloshy.

This effectively sums up my initial feelings on the album (not the video quality lol). I'll listen to it again today in the car and see what sticks.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

In retrospect Shine was a better album than the consensus at the time.

But has he done anything objectively good since as a solo artist?

Like if you heard it and it was some unknown guy you’d take notice?

Be honest with yourself, I think you know the answer.

Honestly, I dig GOTF... especially the "Live Album" he released to streaming platforms. I listen to that quite a bit.

Ghosts of The Forest was good.

Also, I enjoyed my first pass with this one.

I dug the acoustic songs, 'Til we meet again' 'Lost in the Pack'
The arrangements on 'Lotus' and '..And Flew Away' are interesting. A lot of ideas crammed in there. He put a lot together in 3 months in a home studio. Definitely a lot of Trey pop in there but expected

I was kind of surprised to read that Trey didn't already have a bass and a drum set on hand. Even rock stars live in small NY apartments?

Thanks but no thanks......

also, really glad I did not have children if this is the metamorphosis one goes through.

Its true.  :cry:  As soon as I had kids I started writing non-stop ballads about the universe and crying and shit.

Stock up on non-ballad music. And play it to your offspring at the right volume. It keeps you sane.

That's true, I guess my brain compartmentalized GOTF as its own thing, but you're right it is a Trey solo album.

And yeah, I can't say I like all of them, but some of those songs are really good, especially in a live setting.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

So I've now made it through one run of this album and I actually found lots to enjoy about it.
I also will say that I enjoyed GOTF and Sigma Oasis to an extent. Far and away better than Big Boat to me (not that we're ranking).

FTR, I showed my daughter that vid and she exclaimed 'cringey!'

I'm going to assume everyone else feels Greater Good is a swing and a miss.

Overall not bad.  The first 3 tunes are a nice sequence.  Trey has a nice rocking tone on some, great leads underneath on others.  My wife likes his acoustic stuff, that's an easy sell.  Till We Meet Again is a beautiful tune.  I will definitely listen more, first impression:  thumbs up.
