Oof, I bloody love that album. I think it's a masterpiece, won my album of the year in 2009 and I was touting it as one of the best albums I'd heard in the last few years at the time. Sadly the 2 that followed have been rubbish and the ones before were nowhere near as good. They do seem a band that keep alienating their own fan base!
I can't be arsed with it, it's so dull and unexciting, which was the complete opposite of the album before it. The 2 albums after weren't that good but I liked them way more, the first half of the new album is okay but the rest after that is forgettable.
They seem like they'll be another band that doesn't seem to realize they're headlining, so just treat it like any other gig. We're running low on headline-caliber bands who'd actually love the opportunity.
