I liked the new El Ten Eleven, but I can see it being easily disappointing when stacked up against their other albums.

They bought in to "dance-rock", and I was not impressed. Their self-titled will live on, though.

I agree that the new ASMZ was very poor.

Wasn't too impressed with the French Kicks album. Fucking loved the new ASMZ though. All in all probably my favorite staffer list.
