Alright, so Carl and I decided to dig into Awake this past week. 

There is obviously a ton of well-deserved love for this album, so we thought it would be good try to peel back the nostalgia and really dive into this thing track by track, framing our memories of it then within the context of now.

Enjoy!

Wait, people say awake is their best album?

I don't think it's even better than I&W

Different opinions for different people : I actually think it is.

Omg the very end, comparing I&W to PJ Ten made my day.

I'd love to hear a podcast for every DT album; I'd listen to them all.  :coolio

This one was most excellent.  Awake has long been my favorite DT record, so a podcast like this is basically throwing me read meat (although the lack of love for The Silent Man was disappointing :P).  :lol :lol

Just kidding. It's all good. I'm looking forward to listening to the new podcast this week.

I personally think that Awake is an amazing record. It's hard for me to put a finger on exactly why it clicks, but here's a random thought: It has certain songs that I love but don't necessarily listen to a lot, so every time I play the album, it has a certain freshness to it that is hard to maintain after so many years. For example, I think that Images and Words is a masterpiece, but I've heard every song on it a million times. When I play Awake, tracks like "Innocence Faded" and "Lifting Shadows" stand out because I only hear them a few times a year. :lol
