Their last album was simply produced to be a major label release, hence all the clean production and being overly produced. This album, I feel, is the most organic sounding album they've done. I think everyone was expecting ...is a real boy part two, since they went with Tim O'Heir again. The band has matured and grown since 2004. ...is a real boy part 2 won't happen. People need to learn this. Any band can make the same record multiple times, it takes real talent to broaden your musical ability.
