Interesting...saw them in 2000 as well! I've kind of lost touch with them in the past 10 years but I'm looking forward to the new album.

Yeah, it's okay... what's the line? 'And baby don't you know there'll be surprises?' Not on this tune. Not bad, but not ground they haven't thoroughly covered before.

It's [i]okay[/i]. But I've been underwhelmed by a lead single from Et before ("Sylvie," from '98's [i]Good Humor[/i]) only to have the record turn out fine. But this simply ain't much cop after a seven-year wait.

No love for 'Sylvie'?? That song is just unstoppable. Never heard an Et fan say they didn't like it. But then I'm not all that into the big singles from Tiger Bay, which seem to have otherwise gotten universal praise.

The re-issue in 2022 featured several songs that were not available when it was first released. I have seen thus band live twice. They are amazing.
