So instead of having "outside writers" they just hired the outsider, so he's an insider. Brilliant!

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.

After what must be about 20 listen to the album since Monday which isn't hard because of it's short length, I can easily say that this is their best album since Empire. My God! I never thought I'd ever be able to make a statement like that!

And if you think it's their best album since Empire, then you automatically think it's their best album since Operation: Mindcrime, seeing as several albums since Empire have been better than Empire...

Ya, I was just going to add that, but I had to run. It's all good and to each their own.
