    Default The novelty has worn off - How do you feel about Days Go By now?

    DGB is not new anymore. Has your opinion of it changed in any way?

    The Future is Now: 7.5
    Secrets From The Underground: 8
    Days Go By: 7.5
    Turning Into You: 9.5
    Hurting As One: 9.5
    Cruisin' California: 7
    All I Have Left is You: 7
    OC Guns: 8.5
    Dirty Magic: 6 (great song, new version doesn't do too much for me)
    I Wanna Secret Family With You: 7
    Dividing By Zero: 9.5
    Slim Pickens Does the Right Thing and Rides the Bomb to Hell: 9.5 (maybe 10)

    Might also be interesting to see where it ranks among other albums. I don't have the time for that right now though.

    Side note: The last measure of the bridge in Dividing By Zero bothers me. It's too predictable, and the guitars should be doing something different, or a different rhythm or something.

    It still has a feeling of being new, so I will give it a year until I can give you an answer.

    Man, I wish music took as long to get old to me as it seems to for you...

    It took like two years for me to feel that RAFRAG wasn't new anymore. I don't know why that is.

    Pretty much, when I know all the parts and transitions, it's hard for a song to still seem new to me. It might linger in a sort of "new-ish" category for a little while after that, but not for too long.

    For whatever reason, it's an album of good songs that I never want to listen to.
    Maybe next time.
    Quand ils ont dis "Vous vous asseyez," je me suis levé.

    I'm still a pretty big fan of the record: some songs have even grown on me quite a bit, such as OC Guns (didn't care for it initially, now i never skip it).

    Still saying its better than RAFRAG.

    It takes a long time for music to get "old" to me, too. Probably because I listen to such a huge variety of music that unless an album is brand new to me, I rarely listen to the same album twice in a week... maybe even in a month.

    Anyway, I never listen to this album. It's not a bad album, but I'm just not into it. I don't get the urge to listen to it. I think I've listened to it once in the last two months.

    I love OC Guns. I gave it an 8.5, but that's only because I kind of have to be in the mood for it. When I'm feelin' it, it's more like a 9.5 to me. I've come to find that all parts of that song are catchy, no filler.

    I can somewhat see this if your enjoyment of the songs is a bit less than mine. To me, this album has enough good songs, but it's lacking good songs of a similar mood. Sure, there are a few songs you could say fit this category, but I often find myself in the mood for some of the good songs on DGB, and not in the mood for others. And then the tables turn next time I listen. So as a result, I usually don't listen to more than a few songs from DGB at once.
