Obviously hard to tell from only thirty seconds each but some of them sound like they'll be great. Some, ehhh. Quite a bit of it sounds pretty chill. Hopefully I like this more than Under the Boards. That one was pretty hit and miss with me.
While his voice still isn't what it was on the first 3 albums, it seems he has settled in nicely as it is not sounding too nasally or whiny compared to some of the later efforts (Which his voice was hit or miss for me depending on the type of song)
I haven't really been very interested in the last couple album (although I bet I'd like them if I gave them more time)...but I am digging this quite a bit.
The first thing I thought when I heard his voice for the first time in a long time was holy shit, he sounds a loooot like one of the singers from Edison Glass. Or the guy from Edison Glass sounds a lot like him.
Either way. I thought I'd point out that Edison Glass is the shit. So is STD.
