Well, maybe - maybe not. What I was getting at is that I had the EXACT same reaction as you at first. I was underimpressed. The lack of hard-hitting crushers like "Death Rides a Horse" left me disappointed at first - definitely - and I didn't get an initial read on the "beautiful" songs (or parts of songs) as being all that impressive either. However, after forcing myself to really absorb this one - in large part thanks to my one-hour drive to and from work each day, where I get to listen to a lot of music, fortunately - I was able to really start appreciating it more. Hence my description of this album as a grower.

It still may not be "Enter" or "Station", but at the end of the day I am duly pleased with "Geneva" - and maybe more importantly for me, I can see now that they haven't "lost their edge" or anything like that.
