Didn't they release something god-awful a couple albums ago, or their last album? I remember hearing one of their albums a while back and it was great, but then whatever followed was really bad. This, however, sounds pretty damn impressive.
I disagree about it being god-awful, but you're thinking of 2011's The Here And Now
. It's pretty widely regarded by fans as their worst release, but IMO that doesn't say much when you take into context how great their other records are.
