I only care about which ex-members of which bands got together because I didn’t like any of their previous groups (Guzzard, King Can, etc.). This power trio extends their streak, a dubious accomplishment at best. It’s more boring guitar rock, which not only sounds dated now but sucked when it was in vogue the first time. In this case, the old adage of dancing with the one who brought you doesn’t hold true; this record is some of the best evidence yet presented for ditching your date in favor of someone better at the hoedown.
