I already pre-ordered this album, I'm really hoping this doesn't turn out to be a disappointment. (I haven't heard any of the songs when I pre-ordered, I wanted to be surprised.) This review doesn't help my worries.

Besides that, fantastic review. Well written.

It's not a major letdown by any stretch. There are some incredible songs on this record. The disappointment is only slight. I assure you, you will enjoy this record. It can be exhausting though.

I preordered as well. One of my highly anticipated 09 releases. Again you have me excited.

Out of the four songs I've heard, only "Circles" has been able to hold my attention. Considering how much I loved the last, I probably don't need to explain how much of a disappointment that is. There's something missing and I don't quite know what it is. I'm hoping that by the time this is released over here I'll feel differently but it's not looking likely.

It's a shame really. There's no other way to put it.

Not even close. Far from arrogant.

How do you figure? They work hard, make amazing music, have a flawless live show, and are really nice guys. Can't ask for much more than that.

excellent review...however after reading it i feel like the score you gave it seems a bit high. most of the review is dedicated to the odd choices the band made on the record. i dont want to read into the score too much, because i know that your write-up is really what's important, but do the stand-out tracks really make up for the missteps enough for the album to warrant an 86%?

Nice review, Greg. An engaging piece! From your criticisms, it doesn't seem to agree with a score of 86. Score isn't really an issue for me, so whatever.

I am anticipating this album but I'm not sure if the change in sound will agree with me; I'm a big fan of the self-titled. We shall see!
