Yeah songs are good for the most part but there is definitely something off with the mix 

Thought the last album sounded excellent so this is disappointing 

I agree, the mix takes away a little from what otherwise seems to be a pretty good album.  I've only listened to the promos on YT and the tracks on Spotify, so I'm curious if any forum members with a physical copy are encountering the same

Jeez, I gotta be honest. Didn't see the last few posts in this thread and heard this earlier this week and didn't really think anything at all of the sound quality. I remember one song, maybe the fourth, sounded weird on my computer but fine on the car stereo. Overall, all good with me.

Just listening to Is It Love as I type and I do kind of get what y'all are saying, but don't let it put you off. It's a cool album. I quite like it. Absolutely love Is It Love.

I Wanna like it but the vocals are so buried. In some tracks I can't understand a word he's on about. 

can't be bothered when there's so much other quality stuff about.

if I'm honest that hard sleazy stuff has kinda had it's day with me....it needs to be awesome to register - Crashdiet last year I found pretty average as well albeit the sound on that was very good.

Man, I tried.... I really tried..... but my how this band has fallen since their first couple albums. The mix is a mess. There's some decent hooks and songs in there but it's so disjointed, I got very little from it. Those buried vocals ruin a pretty solid track in "Is It Love".

Thanks God i'm not the only one who thinks there's nothing wrong with the production and all. For me Is It Love is the only song that sounds different (drum machine?) but overall, yeah, that's a good album.

As mush as Geoff is a stickler for sound quality, I can't believe he thinks this sounds ok.

Much have too much Cody spunk in his ears!

Yep, agreed. Nothing ruins an album more for me than shit sound quality and I didn't bat an eyelid at this one, so I guess that says it all for me. 

Perhaps you should get an injection of Cody's spunk too, as it obviously works wonders!

when I struggling to understand the lyrics that's an instant turn off me.

can't be bothered

I'm taking a first listen to this now.
TBH I didn't really notice the vocals being buried until I remembered the comments here and started listening for it.
Overally I guess it's there. A tweak of the equalizer helps, but familiarality will also help I'd think.
Certainly not as annoying to me as it is to otehrs here.

Had a few spins now.
No issues with sound quality.

Stand outs are
Is It Love
My Vicious Way
One For The Road
A few others may be late bloomers, but I'm always happy to pick up a few songs from an album.
If I was rating it, overall it would be pretty average I guess.

    • Joe Biden is the epitome of the Washington D.C. sewar rat.Been a public servant (public miscreant) for 45+ years has the blood on his hands of all kinds of detrimental legislation and Trump after 4 years is the spawn of Satan? Lofl! You mean the guy who actually gave a f--k to do something about the flood of criminals,drugs,sex trafficking and assorted 3rd world diseases coming into the country? Man he a wacist.The fact of the matter is that old Joe promised a whole lot of radical,crazy @ss leftwing polices on the campaign trail that he now has to deliver on....or the nutjob leftist base will crucify him.   If American media was just honest 1/3 of the time to the public at large they would actually know what in the hell is even going on in their own country....how many people has 'Cuomo' murdered in the last year in a half ?  How many thousands of unvetted Mexicans and otm have entered the country w/ ch!nk19 under Biden in the last 90 days? 
    • Hopefully we don't have another pandemic.But how these leaders respond to these things like pandemics,hurricanes,etc... do affect the economy.Trump putting his son in- law in charge of the pandemic response,basically getting medical supplies,would've been laughable if it wasn't so stupid.
    • I guess it's sadly or gladly but you missed a year-the most pivital one
    • I'm responding to the initial question that Leykis 101 started about what specifically has Biden done.And I somewhat agree with you-what can 3 months really tell us. But I will say that Biden has done a great job getting the vaccination out to people who want it.That has certainly helped people get back to work.Trump promised 20 million in a month and we ended up with a little over 2 million.He spent his lame duck period crying about how the election was stolen than actually running the country.What you call the natural flow from one administration to the next was actually the worst transition in my lifetime.He was in denial and never invited Biden to the White House.
    • Not doing much for me at all - Haven’t enjoyed anything they have done since Black Butterfly. Will check it out though. 
    • Now you're giving your opinion.I agree with you that Trump should've locked down the country more.He should've taken the virus more serious but he didn't.I think that the US economy and unemployment rate would be a lot better had someone else been in charge.And yes that's my opinion based on Trump's inept handling.
    • Shit dude... I know a few Shortino tunes but that’s an ask with just a few ‘Na Na Na’s’  @traditionalheavy Any other stand out memories - Riffs, other lyrics etc? As our AOR aficionado Leykis101 pointed out those are very popular lyrics.  I've had a look through some late 90 / early 00 Shortino releases (The Cutt & ‘Stand Or Fall’) and nothing jumps out.  We may have to call in the heavy artillery MrAOR.  I assume not, but could it be this?  
    • Of course I'm gonna use these figures.Why not use facts.Let's go over these. We all agree that the unemployment rate was 4.7% when trump took office.
    • That was kinda my reaction, too. Though I don't think an album of "All Lips n' Hips" would do nothing. I just don't think they could ever write songs like that again.  This album is a grower for me. Great musicianship all round.
