Well I know it was released a couple months ago (I don't know if it got a US release actually) but Coachella introduced me to them in 2006 and I have been a huge fan since! The second album grows up a bit and maybe gets a bit softer? NO! don't think that like mellow but just not as in your face ala "cosmopolitan" or "get your guns" but some heavy tracks nonetheless. A bit more melodic in places such as "bitter end" but also revisiting old sounds as in the song "Forget my name." but also some heavy hitters, "so in love" and "everytime I turn." Really great album IMHO.
Got to see a few songs live when I saw them in London in June before the release, i know they did "burn faster" live but can't recall any other new tracks...damn they are just a great band!
Yep, still very new grunge sound.
