They finally took the leap! I love that they have finally committed to pushing their sound forward and making it work in new ways. This album will no doubt be hated by the people who wanted them to revisit "Is This It", but anyone that's willing to accept that they aren't interested in taking that path should really enjoy this album. "Tap Out" and "Welcome To Japan" are new-wave perfection. And "80's Comedown Machine" and "Call It Fate, Call It Karma" are both hauntingly beautiful. I'm LOVING this album!
