Hard to disagree with that one Glen. Around Midnight is the best of the bunch for me.
I find the novelty wore off pretty quick - despite me being a big fan of both Ted’s music and Trixter.
On a side note I thought that album Ted did with the boys from Degreed ‘Modern Art’ was excellent.
It's a good album. As mentioned by everyone, a good run of 4 songs and one two good ones in the second half. But its not just TMF, none of the heavyweights has blown me away with their new releases. I know we should be happy in this day and age that we are getting to enjoy our kind of songs that we grew up listening to, but how I wish these great bands would once again recreate the magic of their earlier albums. Speaking of which, I think HEAT was about as closest as possible but was ultimately letdown by a few fillers. If I have to rate all the albums from the heavyweights this year then it would be somewhat like this -
Harem Scarem>HEAT>TMF>Vega>One Desire.
Haven't heard Revolution Saints yet.
