Bought tix at the fan presale for Jones Beach in June. Anyone else enjoy their music? They released a new album but I have yet to hear it.

I like them, though I sort of lost interest in the early 90's. I have heard the new album is good; one review likened it to Life's Rich Pageant.

I tried on the presale for Atlanta for a long while this am and never got anything, very frustrating. Will try on the public sale Sat at 10, which is the onsale for all the shows. Reckoning is my favorite album by them.

Bought the new album. Very, very good.
Kick-ass rock and roll like they used to do.

Harkens back to the IRS years sound.

Been listening to it on Napster while i'm painting, getting ready to play the new Van Morrison also.

I have been a REM fan since "Murmur" all the way to "Automatic for the People", then I kind of got away from them. But not because I disliked them. The new one is sounding pretty good.

My fave CD by them is : "Reckoning"..the song "Seven Chinese Brothers" is a good one.

Also a fan since the Murmur album first came out.

This new one is a serious rocker. Very guitar oriented where their last three were more keyboard oriented.

Not their best by any means but still very well done.

Harkens back to the energy that was found on the last IRS record Document IMO.

And fortuantely nothing like Up, Reveal, and Around the Sun.

Kenny...you didn't miss much by passing on those three....

Document is my favorite. If you get a chance grab this, still on Amazon. Nice book and packaging

they're moving ahead with large stadium shows with nobodys as the opening acts, I guess they feel they can still generate that kind of demand after disappearing from the scene for so long? Its one band I always wanted to check out so we'll see!
