I know...I know.. I have not heard the full album yet, but spent some time today listening to all of the clips that are out. So I am going to say it.. Based on what I have heard... I AM FIRED UP about this album. Yup, I said it. I like what I hear. I like the fast stuff, the Dave campy stuff...I just plain like it. Maybe it's nostalgia, maybe it's because I knew some of the songs from their demos, maybe it's just because it put the FUN BACK IN MUSIC! OK, I have my teflon on. But that is my opinion and I am sticking to it. I don't care what Sammy thinks. I don't care how it compares to how the band sounded 30 stinking years ago....I just enjoy it, the way music should be enjoyed....just because!!!!
