Where all that praise is coming from? I see nothing but generic indie-by-numbers record, vocals are terrible, melodies are non-existent, and sound is just lo-fi pretensiuosness. I wonder how awful the original record was that they needed to remake it. Pure drivel.
Nothing truly new, often sounds like Delta Machine 2.0, but the material is pretty solid again, the idea of making the entire album in mid-tempo works just fine, especially in the not-really-new political embodiment of the band.
