Waiting for the Sirens’ Call

It’s good, it is. In fact it’s better than good, it’s freakin’ great. But I’ll hold off on a fuller discussion about it now, suffice to say that no, it isn’t Technique part II by any means but that’s no bad thing, I’d rather have something able to stand on its own.

Less fragmentary than Get Ready (which I very much enjoyed), able to somehow capture that atmosphere of reflection and energy which characterizes the band at its best and has a killer first single in “Krafty,” which has much more of a kick to it than “Crystal” did. It’s a perfect summer (Sumner?) single coming out at the wrong time of year but I’ll bet yer dollars to donuts it’ll sound perfect when they play it at Coachella in May.
