I must say, they've done a good job tempting me. That is to say, tempting me enough to want to download it off the internet.

I heard the Andy Partridge (XTC)-penned tune, and it's great!
Just seeing who else wrote the rest of the material, makes me interested. I'm certainly going to at least stream the thing. Possibly buy it, if it strikes me right.

Saw a really good review of this. Produced by the Fountains of Wayne guy. Nesmith is on board. It's on Spotify, so I'm going to give it a listen.

I like it the Gibbard song and I don't even like Gibbard. Also there's a song written by Nesmith, Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller

Yeah, I listened to it and it is really good. I also dig the Gibbard song, and I am not a Death Cab fan, either.

I find it to be pleasant enough, we'll see how it holds up to multiple listens. Now the next step is to get them in the Rock'n'Roll HoF.

I noticed the ad push, but I've studiously avoided learning anything about it. Seems like a solid plan for now.

I listened to it and it's not bad for what it is. Their voices are nowhere near what they once were, but this is probably the best they could possibly do at this point. Not sure how much I'll go back and re-listen, but I won't skip if it pops up on shuffle.
