i listened myself - i will be buying it august 28th - but i was a little disappointed by the first few songs, but the last half and 'Diamond Lightening' are SO good.
Id actually give this album like an 85% (going by the AP ratings
) - too pop-sounding to me in some areas, but the last half of the album totally redeems it.. i do like the back-to-the-old-stuff to the songs though.
My Favorites (in order)
- Diamond Lightening
- Cold Company
- Lonely Gun
- Heaven is a Ghost Town
