Apparently that's his new modus opperandi on Human Hearts. Perhaps it's just an "every other record" formula, trying to recapture what made their second album We, The Vehicles so successful. I picked the two songs, that for lack of a better phrasing, were the most "Davey being Davey". This could all be nostalgia speaking, but The Promise Ring I still remember fondly, and I know Joey has a similar feeling, because frankly, they never did us wrong. Although I've found Maritime to never be as consistent as The Promise Ring, I always give a fair listen, and I hope you do too.
