It really is amazing how consistent these guys are.
I have been blessed with an appreciation for all music. While I may not be the deepest expert on any one genre, I am well versed across the board and can tolerate most anything as long as I feel it's an honest effort.
Good?
Meh....that's opinion.
Quality is quantifiable, however.
It's a very short list of artist who are able to evolve they way this band has AND dance in and out of genres until they themselves defy classification. These artist aren't always successful in the charts, but they are never boring.
Let's see, there was Bowie.
Waits.
Ummm...dang. Might be a shorter list than I initially thought.
Anyway, my point is that I expected these guys to stumble so many albums ago that I'm almost numb to how good stuff is by them.
I can't think of another group in any genre who's had the run of great albums these guys have. I've been expecting them to drop a stinker for years and aside from a couple songs I'm not really a fan of (I once flicked a puppy on it's ear when Kickdrum Heart came on the radio. Sorry, little puppy) they haven't.
I too am so anxious to hear it.
There will be no puppies present when I do.

I love ALL of what you said and completely agree! I've stuck with some bands through progression and a changing sound - Beck, Sonic Youth, Ray Lamontagne.. just a few examples.. I def didn't love all of what they did. I kind of floated in and out of paying attention. With the guys though- wherever they seem to wander, it's speaking to me.. happy, sad, banjo, piano, screaming, raw, polished, .... I'll take it all!
