I'm happily surprised though -- something which both recaptures their old sound, but still sounds fresh to my older tastes. Most of the album maintains a delightful grindy sinister sound. I'm not sure why track 2 was chosen as a daily download, as I felt it was one of least engaging tracks. I suggest sampling any of tracks 3,5,6,8,10 and DL if it appeals. Skip 2,4,11. The remainder are all solid, if you enjoy what you DL'd. (And I think the reviewer meant 25yrs, not 15yrs.)

Best Shriekback in Years

I am glad to see that emusic is getting the latest Shriekback on their site! This album is fantastic! I say that as a long time fan. Check out the newest album "Glory Bumps" as well. It is great too! I hope "Jam Science" will be available here soon. I can't find it anywhere!
