I have waited for this album for so long. I have been a huge fan since 1997 . Every cd that is released is different and I love that about BB. I admit that this one didn't catch on as quickly as Lapalco but then neither did Alternative to Love. I have listened to it all day, and I must agree with the Rolling Stone review that it does have an ELO/ Wings vibe to it , which is ok with me since I love both of them. So far, for me, the stand outs are Garbage Day,Misery,Borrow, and Poised and Ready. I highly recommend this cd ,but not if you are looking for the Raconteurs.
