Feel the same. If this were a brand new band and a debut album, we'd probably be salivating.
I do get it....I wish they'd push their boundaries a bit more. I think Erik has the kind of voice that always sorta sounds the same so they really need to get creative with song structures, riffs, hooks, harmonies, etc in order to change things up.
Still pretty good and I have it slotted in my #4 spot in this fairly down year for my tastes.
Here's another couple of greats. I first heard the Kane Roberts track on a great compilation CD I picked up back in the day. I can't remember the name at the moment, but it's listed on the main site. Rough and Ready, I think? It was one of those choruses that gave me goosebumps on first listen. Took me a while to get the album. The 1st Avenue track is all class.
