....and it's exactly what I expected.
Some of it reminded me more of Tomahawk than of FNM, but other tunes were straight up FNM. Definitely some interesting stuff for FNM. None of it struck me as forced, but it's been 17 years since their last record and it's not like any of their records sound the same from one to another anyway. Nothing struck me as thrown together, either, it sounds like they actually put some work into these songs.
I was over a friend's house who had it, I didn't get to sit with just the record and absorb it and I didn't really want to, I just wanted a taste in the background while we were shooting the shit. 2 songs stuck out enough that I had to go back and actually listen to them....it's going to be hard waiting for this fucking record to come out.
