I'm mulling over whether to buy it, but there's a sea of bullshit reviews that are proving tricky to wade through ("album of the decade" was one risible comment) and only excerpts of two songs available on their MySpace.
I'm tempted to download it first but I was wondering if any of you fine fellows could give me an idea of what it's like? Effectively I want it to be Under the Sign of Hell but I'm resigned to it not getting anywhere close.
I listened to the samples on MySpace, but I've heard nothing else. My initial impression was that it sounded a vast improvement on the last few albums which were slightly lacklustre, but also that I hadn't heard quite enough to judge on.
I wouldn't mind listening to it before committing to buy. I normally wouldn't consider it but considering the radical line-up change and that, of the whole album, there's barely 2 minutes of stuff on their MySpace I think they've brought it on themselves.
