It’s finally here! After about a week of distracting/self medicating myself with turkey, ice cream, and football, The Head and The Heart Itunes session has been released. I took a quick listen to the full thing and made a few notes along the way.

Lost in My Mind – New drum pattern that kicks in about one minute and five seconds in to the song. Really a great groove that gets your body moving and then one minute later reverts back to the foot stomping drumming on the original version. I love the way this small change adds a world of depth to the song.

When I Fall Asleep (Known as New Jam, or Sally) – I have been a huge fan of this song for a while now, and I am glad to see it included in this release. To me this song has always seemed like their most versatile song. It’s not fast, or slow, it just is what it is, and it makes you want to sing along.

Coeur d’Alene – Interesting to hear this song without being preceded by it’s frequent partner Cats and Dogs, yet surprisingly it didn’t feel out of place at all.

Rivers and Roads – Great stuff, glad you can hear Charity really belt it out with authority.

Cats and Dogs – This version is just a lot of fun. Honestly I don’t want to spoil it by writing anything about it. Listen to it. Now.

Ghosts – Just a solid overall recording, and a good listen.

Down in The Valley – Always have loved this song. Always will. Does not disappoint.

Ever Since (Known to fans as Chasing a ghost) – Whenever I hear this song, I picture a camp fire, a bearded man, and a romantic moment.
If I could sing like Jon, and play the guitar, I would build a fire, grow a beard, and just let it all happen. Really sweet song musically, with lyrics to match.

How the band has time to make it into an Itunes studio and record a release like this is beyond me, but then again everything they have done this year in terms of touring, and promos etc. has made them seem almost superhuman. Personally I feel that The Head and The Heart Itunes session is really a solid representation of what these guys and girl have to offer, and I would highly recommend it to fans, and non-fans alike.

I’m having a Lavar Burton inspired moment:

“But you don’t have to take my word for it” – Check it out for yourself, and enjoy!
