I haven't really been into these guys over the years. I don't know why....Just haven't really caught my eye for whatever reason.
Lots of negative comments above but I'm kinda liking this new album. Some fun, pretty catchy type of stuff. I'd agree that it's definitely simple stuff and pretty sugar coated and can see why people that loved some of their past output may not like this.
By the same token though, I've been going back to their earlier stuff and still not finding a whole lot that's grabbing me. I like a couple songs here and there but not enough to say so. The only other album maybe I'll consider picking up is their greatest hits album that came out a few years ago as that would probably hit their highlights.
