>I agree that Athena is saved by the lyrics,
I like the lyrics, but I can hardly stand to listen to it for some reason.
The tune cloyed really fast. Whew--as bad as "Squeezebox"! :P However,
it would be interesting to hear what they'd do with it live. A bit more
instrumentation wouldn't hurt some of the songs on IT'S HARD.
>but I have always hated YBYB until I heard it live.
I didn't quite HATE it, but I had no respect for it until I heard it live.

The live concert experience has a lot to do with how the songs are
perceived. I remember thinking "Bargain" was such a great song when they
were playing it at the shows, but when I heard the replay, Roger was clearly
off key. Didn't matter a whit during the show--it was a terrific song. You
just can't get the atmospheric sound on that cd.
