18:39 - Marcel Hubregtse Those two were okay, but still incredibly generic. Like you I don't understand why they keep on going back to that sound from time to time.
18:37 - Apothecary I'd say the first two MV albums weren't all that bad, but it should've just stopped after that. And yes, I've been wondering why they continue to bother with that sound anymore as well
18:30 - Marcel Hubregtse Incredible that a band that can be totally out there when they want too (bordering on avantgarde) also records stuff which is incredibly generic (looking at all the MV albums)

After the first listen I thought that this album is weaker than "Hisingen Blues" but now that I've listened to it a couple more times I can say that it's almost on the same level. There are some fast and rocking songs, such as Endless Night and Goliath, and there are also some nice slow, bluesy songs (i.e. Hard Times Lovin'). Overall this is definitely a hard rock album of the year for me.
