..and who can blame them, years of only making money from gigs because of all the "freeloaders" stealing the music.
Making their sets US-friendly is endearing them to a new breed of culturally johnny-come-lately dance fans who believe EDM is a messiah that delivers them from the bland nature of American corporate music.
This album is the goodbye old fans and hello new ones.
It's unlikely A&B will revert back to melodic uplifting loveliness, they became the house/trance beast we all knew they would.
Good luck to them, I hope the money helps and brings them many new exciting experiences.
Oh, critical album review?
Technically, beautifully mixed, superb production values as always.
Disc 1. Bland house-styled crass. *I like house, but this is dull
Disc 2. Slightly better than disc 1, the remix of Home is nice.
On a final note, I'm glad I knew A&B for the seven years I did, we've had many great times and I'm proud a UK-based label is making it work in a huge marketplace.
