Re: An 04-ish album woulda been sweet ... less Stand Up ...
IMO, Everyday can NOT be looked at as a sore spot. It was a different approach from the band (poppy, catchy tunes).... But if you look at what is now valued by the fans, the Everyday album gave us:
Sleep to Dream Her
What You Are
When The World Ends
If I Had It All
Fool To Think
I'm not saying I'm the biggest fan of any of these songs, but the group consensus is that all of these are welcome in a Live setting above many tunes from Stand Up (especially) and Big Whiskey (which I think gets hate because many songs are 'overplayed', as the diehards say)...
