Better than expected, but no masterpiece
Initial disappointment because it isn't anything altogether life-changing or revolutionary, but on the fifth track now and it's pretty good quality stuff - certainly better than Down on The Upside
but they were ace last night and I thought the new songs blended in really well with the old stuff.
But I'm really relieved, I actually liked Down on the Upside, and this seems like a fairly natural progression, even if that opener sucks balls.
And I actually think it's really really great, it might even sneak into an album of the year list
