Far prefer the sound of this record and i think it's down to the drummer change. Do we agree?
it's not nearly as punchy as the last 2, it's still good, but I don't feel myself compulsively listening to this set of songs.
but they're better songs, i think. far less reliant on Zach's 'look at my big fast drum cock' drumming, and more focussed on Marnie's lovely songs, no? i agree the drums sound softer due to the seventies style production on them, but i rather like that too actually.
I just think the songs aren't as punchy, some of them meander around a bit, though East Side Glory is her best song to date.
i am a drummer so drums is all i hear most of the time.
