Safe is probably my favorite, but man this album really does harken back. Aside the fact that his voice is impossibly indistinguishable from it's old self, musically I just feel like so many of these tracks wold fit right in with the original albums (and don't get me wrong - I LOVE the last two albums). This one is just an absolute blast to listen to over and over.

I think his voice has been a touch Auto-Toned on this one.

Yeah, I have no doubt that it's being manipulated some to get that perfect pitch for the album, but in terms of range and clarity his voice doesn't seem to have changed, whereas other guys' voices have gotten pretty ravaged over time, understandably.

Anyway, after several listens, the only one that seems a little out of place (though still a nice song) is Leave a Light On. It sounds a little more like a Medazzaland track. I can't wait to hear the remaining three songs.

I'll be seeing them at Coachella. I hope they don't conflict with anyone else I really want to see.

Planet earth is one of my favorites to sing aloud in my car. If I make it to coachella, I'm definitely seeing them

Being honest they are a band I have ignored for years,just never got into them. But I love the song all you need is now,its got swagger. I might have to dive deeper into the back catalog!
