I downloaded this on day of release and have been playing it constantly over the past week. At first I was quite disappointed. I just could not get into it and also felt that at approx 37-38 minutes, it was too short.
However, over the weekend it all started to make sense and I am really enjoying it. I think we have to accept that the band that made the first three outstanding CDs has gone. In its place is a band that have evolved and matured but is still making excellent music.
This CD continues in the same vein as the superb "A New Tide". There is plenty of variation throughout and I find it very uplifting. Highlights are Equalize which probably is the only track that harks back to early Gomez and the very catchy Song In My Heart. Saying that I find it better to play the CD all in one go.
Why not 5 stars? Well I am greedy and would have liked an extra 2 tracks. But hey as I said on my review of "A New Tide" we should be glad that these guys are still around, making great music.
