I wasn't crazy about this record at first either, but after giving it a few more spins and having the pleasure of seeing them live last weekend in Milwaukee, it's really started to grow on me. Definitely different, but in now way bad. Good review.
I like Favourite Worst Nightmare way better than WPSIATWIMN, this album was quite a shock for the first listen and i don't seem to get much into this album, although i love some of the songs, but I can say that every time I give it a listen, it slowly grows on me...
My favourite songs are Crying Lightning and Dance Little Liar
now i think this is one of 09's most interesting records (wouldn't say one of the best).
Some great tunes in Humbug....glad to see they went with a totally different direction with this album, i don't know if i could endure one more record of the same sound (even though i love both of their previous works)
