Interesting. I found NLTL one of their less appealing albums, still fun all the same. If we are the view each album as a progression then this new release feels like a step in the right direction from IYH, as it feels like it is merging the two distinctive styles quite neatly, accousticy-mellow-melodic and rocky in equal measures but blended...
At the least it is a good experiment
After a couple of listens though Pretender feels the most appealing of all the tracks. Just because my preference for FF material is dirty guitar rock.
As for the future - I certainly eagerly await every new FF release.
