The original Days of the New was a great album. After the band broke up and the DJ’s dis’d everybody in sight, I shied away from spending the bucks on their 2nd release. After all, isn’t the music a result of the whole band’s effort and not just one person’s? Apparently not. No 2 is a great album and I’m sorry I waited so long to get around to buying it. It only took a couple of listens to get totally into it. I think the radio stations did everyone a big disservice by not giving more airtime.
