4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back gents, 7 May 2013
Always a strange feeling, a NEW album by your favourite band. The "have they changed", "will you still like them".

What they produced is already a contender for best album of the year in my mind. Join the journey, just don't come expecting ghosts...do you believe in ghosts?
