Same. Saw them in an arena once. It felt weird.

I saw them in an arena, it didn't work.

The answer is get general admission, act 20 years younger and push to the front. I did that at the Garden during the tour for El Camino and it worked. I mean it was better at Terminal 5 and at Bowery Ballroom but that sort of did the trick.

New album "lets rock"

Lol. Awful title but:
https://www.stereogum.com/2041210/the-b ... Lxovit5HRI

"They wrote, tracked live, and produced “Let’s Rock” at Dan Auerbach’s studio Easy Eye Sound in Nashville. Leisa Hans and Ashley Wilcoxson contributed backing vocals. “The record is like a homage to electric guitar,” the band’s Patrick Carney says. “We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to.”"

'tracked live". This has so little meaning now. Tracked live and re-gridded using pro-tools? Tracked live to a click track? Or we let the band play, no click and kept the tempo fluctuations?
I am probably jaded about what bands say about upcoming releases but in general I think they are too caught up in the hyping the album to be truly reflective about it and the process to make it.

Yeah. It sounds like it was recorded underwater and is the most paint by numbers schlock they could put out.

The drum sound is horrid. The best that can be said is that it sounds like a leftover from ZZ Top's Afterburner era.

Forgettable yet enjoyable.

Just what I need in my life right now. Goes down easy and smooth.

Yeah this is how I feel. Nothing to write home about but worth adding to the rotation on my ancient mp3 player. The whole 'simple approach' and trimmed all the fat' talk is kind of BS though; both songs have pretty thick production compared to their earlier albums.

If you sign up for their fan/email list you can listen to the new album in full on their website.

Definitely. Turn Blue felt tired and lazy.

This is catchy at least with some tasty riffs.
