After six years of silence, The Odds retains the traction of the band’s previous albums, progressions in songwriting apparent as the otherwise familiar banter of MacKaye’s baritone guitar is expressed with acoustical down strokes or rhythmical polish.
The Odds is, in every way, the product of scaling down operations rather than of giving up or throwing the fans a nostalgia trip.
A mix of PJ harvey, Weezer and the Rentals. Goods album whitout fuzz.
