DavidM.Jun 5, 2005Brilliant music from this band that continues to deliver well into their 3rd decade.
ChuckHMay 20, 2005I like the disc more now than when I first heard it. More importantly I can appreciate this disc for what it is; a band that remembers its roots and isn't affraid to grow. On my first run through I didn't care for much for it until I came across "Guilt..." then I parked the CD player on 'track repeat' for that one a few times (okay 10 times) and soaked it in like a starving plant soaking up sun and rain. That track is brilliant and what I've always loved about the band. Then I gave a better listen to the rest of the album. After a few more run throughs I found myself getting hooked on the other pieces and tracks. Soon I was thinking about different tracks in my head when I wasn't listening which is usually a good indication that I like a track. And the final measure of how good a song or disc is in the fact that it ends before you think it should. I put in "Get Ready" to compare it and I feel that "Sirens'" is stronger and more in depth musically, but we'll see if that changes in a few months when the new-ness wears off.… Expand
