Agreed. Bayles just seems to know the band's strengths better than others.
Kinda my sentiment. OMNI was ok, but it was a departure. I want a "return to our roots" album with some dance and guitar noodling.
I can't agree with this. Mainly because I'd rather see progression than a band regress simply because they went a different route. "Pirates" and "Menos" are fine as they are, we don't need a rehash of those.
