Huh, I hadn't intended this to be a music format discussion... but there you go. I just like poking Brad with a stick
So yeah, the album... I like it. A lot. Redemption is totally unrepresentative, and it's quite annoying that Todd has clearly approached every lyric with the attitude "how would Geoff pronounce this?", the mix is also a bit off, but the most important thing is the songs are, for the most part, really quite good.
