    One of my favorite quotes from Glenn is "God likes a quiet giver." Or something to that effect. While I like that our guys don't beat their chests with 'look how great I am' and tell the world how much they donate, I do like little articles like this that at least mention it. There's a difference between pontificating oneself and leading others by example. Don is another great example, while I'm sure he's donated a lot of money to Walden Woods, for the most part all we see is the time he puts into it, and using his time to encourage others to donate.

    In my opinion people, rich or not, who don't take what they have for granted, or even worse, think they're entitled to it, are the ones who make sure they give something back. The ones who do take it for granted, or think it's something they're owed because of who they are, those are the ones who think "I've Got Mine"

    VA, I agree with everything you said. (I would've responded sooner, but somehow I missed your post)m I love to hear about the guys donating their time and money to good and worthy causes. It makes me love that even more! The way Glenn goes about it, makes him seem so humble and thankful for the good fortune that has come his way(the same with Don).

    I've had Long Hot Summer stuck in my head ever since I heard about the Charleston church shooting. It's made think about that song and all of the tensions in the states, which alway seem to escalate during the summer.

    I've listened to the album a couple of times since I posted my initial thoughts. It's becoming a favorite very quickly. Here's my ranking list:

    1. Long Hot Summer
    2. Love in the 21st Century
    3. River of Dreams
    4. I've got Mine
    5. POMPOY
    6. Brave New World
    7. Strange Weather
    8. Silent Spring
    9. Before the Ship Goes Down
    10. He Took Advantage
    11. A Walk in the Dark
    13. Agua Tranquillo
    14. Rising Sun
    15. Delicious

    I'll probably play it again later this afternoon.

    To my beloved favorite solo album, a belated ...

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO STRANGE WEATHER!!!

    I haven't listened to it for a while, so I'm going to rectify that this week.

    I gave it a listen last week. All I can say is I just don't care for his songs in falsetto. He has a gorgeous voice normally, why do this? It's not just Glenn's falsetto, anyone's really. That's just me.

    Favorites are Part of Me, Part of You, River of Dreams, and I've Got Mine.

    Brooke, I agree with you 100%. I don't like anyone singing in a falsetto voice.

    My favourites

    Long, Hot Summer
    He Took Advantage of Her (Blues for Ronald Reagan)
    A Walk in the Dark
    Brave New World

    I also like
    Strange Weather (musically a bit predictable)
    Part of Me, Part of You
    When the Ship Goes Down
    I've Got Mine

    I'm less enthusiastic, but don't mind
    Love in the 21st Century
    Delicious
    Big Life

    The instrumentals are ok but I tend to view them more as extended intros to the songs that follow.

    I don't mind the falsetto, but "True Love" is the only one of his falsetto songs that I love.

    He doesn't sing True Love in falsetto.
