I think he's spoken in interviews, even with POZ that it's going to potentially piss off a lot of people that love Waves. Just a different direction, again.
I kind of assumed it'd be a little self-indulgent. You can tell by the band's history that they kind of do what they want to do. I've enjoyed all their material (and arguably enjoy New Light
the most), so I think it'll be up my alley.
