Minus the Bear have always been one of my favorite bands ... the kind of band that just releases album after album of music I like. I liked Omni when others thought it was a step back. Anyway, the new one has a sound more similar to the band's previous albums with but still with a more "glossy" production sound.
Over all -- I definitely like it, but I don't think it's my favorite from them. The song structures are great, the instrumentation is fantastic, but it feels like some of the parts are better than their whole. Didn't hit me the same as their last few have on first listen, but with this band ... it's always the 6th or 7th that really pay off.
