I've been listening to the back catalogue the past few days. been playing my wifes bump some of my fav songs but I defiantly have noticed a change in writing style and a much more philosophical lyric associated with the tracks after the arrival of kids. Did anyone else notice this?

Definitely. Andy's Ancient Train has the same worries as Boxes, but this one goes further about his life concerns. A Different Room is probably the best song Doug has written yet, and I sense his worry for the passing of days too. As for Fran's Reminder and Warning Sign, they mark a cornerstone too. My Eyes was the first song that reflected his thoughts on how different life was going to be as a parent, but Reminder shows his own growth since his boy has grown.

Funnily, Neil has been a parent for much longer, yet we don't hear his voice (I mean his writing). I wonder how a song written by him would reflect the whole band feeling.
