Hopefully this one will be available for a reasonable cost unlike their last which I haven't seen for less than $40...!

I've missed every update, every live stream, everything. One day it'll just show up at my door, and I'll be like, "Ah, cool!"

Very nice.
Poppier and more of a radio song than usual.
Will be nice if there is a range of styles/moods/vibes/etc on the album

Sounds like Electric Boys.... I like it!

 

They've always had a left-of-center unique sound that seems to bound together a lot of different era's of rock, groove and funk. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I love it.

Album is pretty much what you would expect from the band. A mix and match of styles, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Another cool release.

Ohhh, this is a good one.

Possibly their best.
First listen was great.
Couple of duds, one because it was a boring instrumental, and one because it was a crappy song, but some of the others were fantastic.
Will likely be top 5 for me this year.

Very pleasant surprise. Nice album indeed. Not sure it's a top 5 but it's certainly a very good album. Maybe even their second best.

Which song do you consider crappy?

Love Is A Funny Feeling
Also not a big fan of Rich Man Poor Man

The instrumental is the other one I'll leave out of my Electric Boys folder.

Which leaves 7 songs which is pretty damn good.

Holy shit! I was gonna say "Love is a Funny Feeling" is my favourite track on the album, and might even be my favourite song of the year. It's just so undeniably Funky.

It reminds me too much of one of their older songs.

Like they were trying to replicate that and came up with a B grade version.

I think it's well known that I'm the biggest Electric Boys fan on this site, but I'm struggling to think of what song of theirs it sounds like.

I don't know, I like some of the funky stuff. Maybe there's a bit of Basf in there, or Junk In The Trunk?

Nothing major, but only hints here and there, and not really an issue. Not the reason I'm not a big fan of the song.
