I have a bit mixed feelings about the new album. On one hand, it's pretty much oldschool Everclear. It has all the vibes and feeling of previous records, so it's very nostalgic and easy to get into. On the other hand, it's oldschool Everclear. I've been expecting something new after such a long hiatus. Also, I find the lyrics a little bit lacking. Again, I was hoping that Art will get past the Everclear standard "Life is disappointing, but I'm trying to love it anyway" routine. it almost feels like self plagiarism at times. Oh, and 2 minute songs? Come on! Still, a very enjoyable record.
