  • Sounds like all the others. Not a bad thing. Just hard to get really excited by it. Pleasant.

  • Sounds like a lost Room On Fire track. Decent.
    Read in rolling stone the new album is a collaborative effort, with equal input from each member of the band…

    …Dunno if I’m holding out much hope for it now.

    I love it. The best thing they’ve done since Reptilia and it has me very excited about the new album
