    I have always liked his solo looping stuff, but I am really liking the band he has put together for the new album:

    I dig "Noble Beast" a lot, but I've not really followed any of his albums since.

    Good stuff. I like the new record as well as anything I own from him. Noble Beast, Armchair Apocrypha and Break it Yourself are all great too.

    One of my favorites. He’s got a new one out called Bloodless. I dig it.

    My favorite album of his is "The Mysterious Production of Eggs". Love that whole record.

    Me too. I play two songs from it in my solo acoustic set: The Naming of Things and Tables and Chairs.

    I like him. Saw him live solo. The looping was impressive, but mostly I guess I just like his songwriting.

    He's literally a genius. He's a hometown hero, we graduated from the same HS.
    Eggs is in my top 3 albums of all time. Summer of 05 I listened to that record over and over. As soon as the last notes of Happy Birthday Song faded away, it was right back to Sovay. I remember one road trip from Chicago to Boston I probably listened to that record 8 times.

    The "Why?" From cemetary gates is ridiculous. He's out of his mind, and his body too, check it:

    Totally agree with you on the genius label. It's criminal that an artist like him isn't universally accepted and celebrated.
