I've heard it's a little bit different, but I'm fine with that. Seems like all my favorite bands are stepping outside a box a bit with their releases this year. I can't wait to buy it.
I couldn't answer both of your posts at the same time for some reason. Anyway, I can't sit through most of their older work. The only tolerable past releases for me are the Cherry Tree EP which sort of hinted at the band's future direction and Alligator which is slightly above average at best in my estimation.
Weird about the answering my post. To each their own. Revisit the albums at some point, though, as you might find something you enjoy eventually.
Ada for me.
Have you checked out the two b-sides from the Mistaken For Strangers single? I posted a link a little earlier in the thread if you're at all interested.
Something about Slow Show just makes me love it, but there are several tracks that are potential favorites. I have those two songs, but I have to listen to them still.
