That being said, I will follow Neil's musical path where it shall lead.

I’ll do that too, and I don’t believe there will ever come a day when I won’t listen to something that Neil releases.

However, as I said about a year ago regarding how hard I tried to love Out of Silence, you can’t force yourself to like music you don’t like, no matter how much you want to like it.  

I adore Lightsleeper. I truly believe that album is going to make it into my top 5 all time Finn albums.  The meandering piano is but one part of those songs and makes a great contribution to an arrangement that is so much more than that.  But I am already skipping Listen.  I just think it goes nowhere and doesn’t engage me.  I have been listening to Dizzy Heights today after several years of not listening to it. And as I felt at the time of release, there are a handful of incredible songs (Dizzy Heights, Recluse, Pony Ride, maybe one or two more that have awesome moments, like the bridge of Better Than TV), but on the whole it’s a lot of minor key meandering piano songs that don’t engage me the way many, many, many of Neil’s other songs do.

Drive Home is a piano song that is one of my favorite Neil songs.  What’s the difference between that song and his more recent piano songs?  I honestly can’t tell you.
