These two songs already make a better album than Boarding House Reach. I'm excited!

Finally listened to the new tracks (I've been busy/out of the loop). I'm not as big a fan of the band as many folks here -- I quite like Consolers of the Lonely, but could take or leave Broken Boy Soldiers (most of the songs don't feel complete to me and/or have bland/boring lyrics), and sometimes find Brendan's vocal/lyrical contributions rather indifferent.
That said, Sunday Driver feels like a Sloan track to me, enlivened by Jack's cool riffs and guitar effects, which I'm glad he's carried over from his solo work. Anyways, I like it, but outside of the bridge and aforementioned pedal effects, it's a pretty traditional rock track.
But Now That You're Gone is a stunner. Doo-wop stylings combined with Jack's wicked guitar sound? Yes please. It gives me hope that Jack's edgier elements as a musician won't be as compromised as in earlier Racs recordings which, to me, had a more standard radio-friendly guitar sound. But I think NTYG will ultimately prove to be far-and-away the standout track on the album, as Carolina Drama was on the last one.
It's nice that I won't just be waiting for the next Jack solo outing to hear him cutting loose again. I was worried it was gonna be something like: "Hey folks who found BHR too weird, here's some standard-issue rock for your limited palette!"
