Song-for-song, the writing and the melodies are killer. Less filler or so-so melodies than on their first 3. But the uber-radio pop production neuters part of what makes them so good. They always mixed their pop aspirations with real band power (guitars, real bass, etc.). If they had this set of songs with less current pop-radio production/mixing, it would be their unquestioned best. But as it stands, Hands All Over
might still have that spot as a mix of still having the meat to the arrangements/production with less half-baked melodies than the first two.
