I've not listened to it all but I actually think it starts quite well than plods an awful lot from about track 4. I think the pace eventually picks up about track 7. McCabe ain't exactly all over the album as expected.
I was worried when I seen that Ashcroft has sole writing credits on 4 of the 10 tracks but even a few of the tracks credited to the group sound like "solo Ashcroft".
Having said all that I'll give it time.
