I love Sell Out, I think it`s great. I love the jingles. The whole thing as an album is a wonderful piece of work. The cover. Everything about it. It`s got humor, great songs, irony.
I call it fan fatigue. I went to see Bob Dylan last year, who I think is absolutely incredible, but he suffers from his audience.
