I seem to be alone in this opinion, but this was incredibly disappointing after Save The World....and that was a little disappointing after Under The Fog.
The novel King Blues Sound has vanished to be replaced with irritating pop music. The well written and witty lyrics have vanished to be replaced with cliches and silly, misinformed rants against easy targets (how many times to bankers and bonuses get mentioned?)
5 Bottles of Shampoo is excellent, but sadly spoiled somewhat by the backing track. Shooting Fascists could have been so much better. As it stands, it's too short.
I found this album excruciating to listen to. I suppose all bands change direction and I'm just one of the fans The King Blues had to leave behind.
