First, let me say…I have been a fan since the first album and I have seen them live 6 times. That being said, I am just stating my true opinion about this album. In the past, it seemd like every album after that first one got better and better and better…etc. This album is my least favorite. Im not at all saying the album isnt good, b/c it is, its just my least favorite of all of them. If your a fan, you will enjoy it, but dont expect it to be as good as any in the past. There are no “Closure” or “The Red” or “Get Some” type tracks on this album. Its a decent album, they just went a different way with the music and vocals than they did in the past.
