leaked a while ago, i enjoyed it but it doesn't sound much like their albums from 10-15 years ago.

I'm on my third listen and it's really growing on me. Stand out tracks for me are :

Rubber Ballz

Name For You

Cherry Hearts

So Now What

I agree, it's not the same but then it's a completely different band/approach. It's basically a James Mercer solo project at this point.

I'll be seeing them later this month in Raleigh. Pretty excited

jonaswildman, have a listen.

yeah, i really would need to listen more. i am at fault for rarely doing that with new albums -- there are just too many other options
