    This cd is just down right horrible! It reminds me of a Brittney Spears record! Why they are selling out is beyond me!

    At least on Nine Lives, they sounded anxious to make another record, something darker than they'd done in years. This one here is just an album for the sake of having a new product to go out and promote on tour. And it's embarrassing.

  1. Sure, there's the occasional melodramatic interlude (despite its lyrical cliches, "Luv Lies" has the potency to be another "Angel"-size smash). But there's also more white-knuckled hard-rock intensity here than on the band's most recent efforts.
  2. Much of the 'Smith's music is reassuringly familiar, barely changed over their previous 12 albums, a mix of loose-jointed Stones raunch and vast power ballads impressive enough to bring out the 40-something in all of us.
  3. The band’s most energetic record since 1993’s Get A Grip.
