New album from this fantastic band. Sounds good on first few listens but not up to the same standards as recent efforts which is hardly surprising.

Another decent album though - hopefully some live dates to follow.

Looking forward to this, last few albums have been top notch.

Not totally won over from the first listen but that's often a good sign and an indication that it'll be a grower. Certainly can't fault the musicianship and Lee's voice is great as ever. A slight influence of earlier albums comes through - rather heavier in parts than on the last 3 albums.
