I was quite excited in getting this album, however, I think that I actually like the last two albums (In The Name Of…Love and So Far, So…Close) better because of its styles. This one, though trying to establish a new style–mixing in traditional songs with new music but is not as appealing for some strange reason. Though I must give credit for the efforts done with the album.
I must add that it actually takes awhile to sink in since it sounds better the second time around, especially the song “Only Want To Be With You”.
The MVs were quite interesting and creative, especially with the song “West Dowager” with its complexity of imagery and other illustrations set in.
