It's taken me a few listens to decide whether the guitars were an improvement... they might be in theory, but as it is, they sound very muddy, so it seems like a regress on the crisp sound they'd worked toward over the last several albums.
At the beginning I felt disappointed by the new album because of the guitars... but after second listen I have to say that it is still very decent work and I can still hear that it is the same band. Although I hope that they are still going to record anything like their older stuff.
@ bromadrosis: if last fm would use tags only to establish similar artists (and omit nationality) that would be interesting. They could have a similar category and a "people who listen to also listen to..
"Wicked good stuff, but similar artists fail. " -- Yeah, if everyone could FINALLY learn how the similar artists feature actually works, that would be great. That said, last.fm should really stop using the phrase 'similar artists'. Just say something like "People who listen to this also listen to...". It will confuse fewer dimwits who think last.fm actually employs people to sit around and listen to every artist in the world to see which ones sound vaguely similar.
