Hmm...on first listen, Attack and Release is kind of dull, too restrained. Definitely like Brothers and Rubber Factory a great deal better. Maybe if I had been introduced to them through this I would like it more.

oh and, Lonely Boy rocks . Here's hoping El Camino is less samey than Brothers, and doesn't play it safe now that they've had some mainstream attention.

Brothers is samey? I think that one has really strong variety, and a good quantity of that soul influence I love so much.

Attack and Release was my first one, so I really like it. Nothing tops Rubber Factory, though.

I didn't like Brothers as much as I wanted to. It feels too long, but I don't know what I would cut.


I like the new single very much, and I like the video as well.

I agree with you about the length of Brothers. I feel it would have been made better if it were an 11 song album with a 4 song EP coming out later on. But Brothers is still my favorite, with Rubber Factory a close second. It feels like different bands.

I did quite like Brothers. But it felt a bit same-y to me as well and it was too long.

Same-y may not have been the right choice of words given the band in question made the entire first half of their career making very similar music. Static throughout the album os more what I mean, there isn't a good flow/build throughout for me and yeah it's too long. It's got some great, great tracks but Thickfreakness and Attack & Release remain my favorite.

I absolutely love "Ten Cent Pistol" though.

Everlasting Light and Sinister Kid are probably my favorites from Brothers.
