Really? Bad...? I thought it was really good and had a cool 80's vibe..also you have to give them credit for stepping out of the Coldplay shadow and trying something different.
I'm not saying it was bad because of the change, I applaud them for that. It just wasn't for me. There wasn't really anything that stood out or gripped me like their other releases,I can see why other people would like it but it was sort of dull for my tastes. I still like them as a band though.
