I guess I phrased it wrong...I admittedly haven't given it a proper listen so I should reserve judgement but from what I have heard it sounds a like they could've experimented with other "sounds" while still sticking to their core. I'm not expecting something completely different...this is definitely a "you get what you see" band. I'm simply stating my opinion.
Apologies if I came across as - 'you shouldn't have your opinion.'
I do admit it's not exactly a big step away from their sound, but I definitely feel there is a big latin influence to their sound on this record at times. As you say - their style is a 'get what you see' type of thing... but I think they're still doing it well.
