Having been a fan since I first heard GBS in the states back in 1997, I've been a huge fan. I just have to shake my head (or at least shrug) at the latest attempt. Sure, they include the same formula of mixing originals with traditionals, but sometimes that isn't enough when you start adding a "pop" element. The new sound they attempt on songs like "Sea of No Cares" and "Clearest Indication" does not fit them. They need to have not toyed with their formula of perfection.
On the positive side, songs like "Scolding Wife" and "One True Way" hearken back to UP or PLAY. All in all, not a bad pop/rock album, but it's not good for Great Big Sea.
Another thing missing from this album is the pure energy that emitted from their earlier work. They probably didn't focus on making a "good-timing" record this time around. It's all just too clinical. Go listen to "Play", then listen to this one and tell me it's the same group!
