Meh. I never said they did, either. I'm saying that I believe the band itself has lost their enthusiasm, as mirrored in the way their music has taken a rather noticeable turn for the softer. I don't see how it's really even up for arguing, considering they've stated they're going on hiatus after 3 shows. Doesn't seem like they're too enthusiastic about their new record.
I was just agreeing with Jake's assessments - not addressing any other comments.
As far as enthusiasm goes, anything we'd say is speculation. I think this record is far more in line with what Greg wants to do, so I don't think there's a lack of enthusiasm for this type of sound.
