I've heard some discussion, not necessarily here on this website but in a variety of publications, saying what a disappointment this release is and how the band have sacrificed their trademark sound for something far more pop oriented and polished. Now, I've had this album for the past three/four months, and initially I couldn't warm to it either. What I'm saying is that if you're a returning fan who is a little upset and disappointed in the lack of reverb and dreaminess this debut offers, just persevere. Don't give up on it because you'll eventually connect with it, love it and adore it equally as much as I do.
the album in its entirety.
