I usually listen to a work, performance, or band at least 3 times before I form an opinion. I listened to "Confusion" 5 times before writing this review. This album sounds more like a better version of older material (a la Between The Eyes or Dayglo). What's missing in this album is the musical execution that was present on both Far Gone and Straight Freak Ticket (still their best release to date). The musical layering is why Straight Freak Ticket was so enjoyable. Far Gone had great melodies so there was no need for lots of harmonies.
I give this album a 4 star rating because I like Love Battery. If you want to buy a Love Battery album buy this one, but also buy Far Gone and Straight Freak Ticket (The melodies are a bit more mature and the lyrics are at their creative peak).
Love Battery has gone forward with their careers after Atlas Records gave up on them, but I want to hear more songs like Rust Belt,Confusion, Monkey Brain, and Angel Head.
