    still unsure how i feel about the new song. i respect him so much for not shying away from making new sounds, but, it's just not anything like i expected.

    I still love his old albums! Let's see how the rest of the album sounds like! I guess it will grow on you as you keep listening! That's how I started loving all songs of Toro y moi!

    New song is pretty good, you have to at least appreciate that he's not trying to push out the same stuff.

    I'm hyped as heck for the new record! "Empty Nesters" gets better and better each time I listen to it. I can already tell that this album is going to be a big one. Chaz does not fail to please my ears.

    :( = my face listening to empty nesters. All apologists need to stop. Its the doldrums of psych pop with corny lyrics included. First Le Sins is mediocre and now this....wha happened.... :(

    I love how this guy just ups and changes his sound whenever he pleases, it's refreshing to see an artist take a different route on each album. Looking forward to hearing the rest, Empty Nesters sounds very promising. [3]

    Chaz should chill out, take a time and make some decent music, we know he can make something better than this.
