Disappointing follow up...
on 9 January 2012
I have to agree with Robwells....this album was a bit of a disappointment following their previous 2 albums and especially Union. Its not that the songs are poor...there's some great tracks, but to me they seem badly produced in so far as they have lost the ability to soar and crescende such as on past albums. It all seems too nice and squeezed into a restrictive musical box....not the boxer rebellion we know. I keep waiting on songs to build, soar and expand, but keep getting let down.
The band should stay confident in their own production abilities as they seem to do a better job of it and don't hold back or limit themselves so much.
