Never could get into Return to Cookie Mountain, which got tons of praise. Maybe this one will be different?

Awesome. These guys are tight! Bowie pretty much raved about how good they are. If you haven't heard them check them out soon.

Chaloupka, I felt the same way about that album, but eventually it hit me :)

I look forward to this. I thought cookie mountain had some excellent songs (i.e. wolf like me, a method), but wasn't totally consistent. I think a slightly more focussed, concise record from these guys could be excellent

i really dislike when they do a'cappella sections that seem to take hours. i just find it very annoying and hard to listen to.

hopefully less of that on the new album.

and less airtime on mtv. :)

This band is so sick. I saw them last year for the cookie mountain tour and it was bad ass. I was very impressed. I actually took a couple listen to get to like that record as well, because blood thirsty babes was a lot more raw and impacting on first listen, but then it started to unfold a lot more layers and I really love that record too. I'm very much looking forward to this new album and a tour to follow. Definitely a great group of artists. If you don't have their first album desperate youth blood thirsty babes, I suggest you go get it. Sick record, and groovatronics, your crazy. Their a'capella parts are awesome. They did one when I saw them, and started to mess up, then started over and the song was bad ass. Definitely excited about this release.
