*shudder* Around the Sun was such a god awful album
the current album isnt much better. just because they started to "rock" again doesnt mean they are great again. my biggest disappointment this year. even when i saw them live they were just going thru the motions.
Sorry I always feel like I have to defend Around the Sun as I do actually like it! Admittedly it doesn't rock but I think some of the songwriting is very good and even if the album is over produced the songs are much much better live. With Accelerate they tried to get some of the old spontaneity back and I think went some way to achieving that.
