Obviously in terms of impact and impressive writing from the same time period Love is Hell is much better (but also suffers from the overlong syndrome like Gold) but Rock N Roll is a lot of fun, and I don't think it was supposed to be anything profound, I mean look at the title.

Love is Hell is a different kind of awesome driving CD...late at night on the wide open desert highway. I've done it.

I was waiting until the CD came out, but "Fix It" came on the radio today, and I just couldn't bring myself to change the station. I like it. It wasn't something that made me go wow and be in total awe...but I dig it. I'm looking forward to checking out the whole album.

I listen to it driving late at night as well, its beautiful, but could probably send me to sleep... dangerous.

Jacksonville City Nights is a better driving record.

That CD nearly always gets grabbed off my rack before I make a long drive.

Listening to Trains while racing to get into a town is great.

After a few listens, I'm really enjoying it. The thing that bugs me is that the first four tracks all seem to end so suddenly, and they're probably four of my favorite songs on the album. But still, quality material all around, one of the more consistent in a while.

On another note - do you folks consider Easy Tiger a Cardinals record even though its titled to Ryan solo?

that's probably my number one complaint about the new album as well... That and the lyrics seem a little weak this time out...

I consider Easy Tiger A Cardinals record.

Magick is so damn bad, I can barely describe it.

Otherwise, I'm liking this so far. Perhaps more than the consistently enjoyable but middle-of-the-road Easy Tiger.

oy, that's one of my favourite songs!

I love the "goes around, comes around" line and any song that contains lyrics about nuclear strikes and zombies is ok with me

Sink Ships is the one that doesn't sit well with me for some reason, the lyrics aren’t very good...

Rolling Stone gave it 4 out of 5 btw, they're calling it a "Classic Rock Masterpiece":

I was thinking the same thing. There have been times where I'm really starting to get into the song and then...done.

After hearing Cardinology, it sure seems like it. It's like Easy Tiger 2.0. It even has its own "Halloweenhead" in "Magick"...which, by the way, I am strangely addicted to.

I'm one of the people who liked Easy Tiger though, so I'm not complaining by that statement, for the record. However, I also have the same feeling that it's not an album that is overwhelming me with sheer awesomeness...but I do enjoy it, and there are particular moments that will grab me.

I just bought the album this morning, so I've only listened to it once. So far I'm underwhelmed. Its not a bad album by any means. I enjoy it, but it doesn't stand out to me.
