Rumour is that PT might get back together after SW's next solo tour. I fucking hope so, because I don't care at all about this dull solo material (or. the. stupid. album. titles.). I'd love it if the new album recaptured some of the spirit that made Insurgentes interesting, but my hopes aren't high.

I honestly can't recall. Charlotte saw it as well though. We think it was via a hardcore fan on Facebook, the sort of person who follows every hint of news. So it's not particularly firm info, but it might be something.

Anyone else listen to the new SW yet?

I just finished it and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. It's his best solo work since Insurgentes, miles ahead of Grace for Drowning or Raven. The only song that brings to mind those records is "Ancestral," which sounds like a Raven outtake.

Besides that though, this album is focused on melodies, with great guitar work and vocals and a few surprises. The addition of a female vocalist for a couple of songs gives this record a different feel than any of his past work. The lyrical material doesn't get too heavy-handed in its storytelling, only occasionally.

It has a lot going on for some tracks, but doesn't have the cluttered, overdone feel of the last two. It feels like a grower and I hope it is. I'm glad I got tickets to see him play this live this year.

Highlights: 3 Years Older, Hand Cannot Erase, Routine, Home Invasion, Happy Returns
