    It just came out yesterday in the UK (where i'm from) and i'm deciding whether to buy that or get the new Snow patrol one?

    It's alright. Not as good as I was expecting it to be but there are still some pretty good songs on it. I like the melodic songs more though, and there seems to be a lot of funk on it too and I didn't like those songs much. I thought the album was decent. Worth buying IMO.

    Decent, not amazing. I've enjoyed listening to it, but it's no Californication.

    Disappointing, this album was By The Way 2.0 without the fun hooks.

    mediocre. anything they put out now will always be disappointing because it'll never be as good as bloodsugarsexmagik.

    its, well, meh. I have all of their albums, and so far I like this one the least. Altought, I can hear their music heading through the years towards this, its almost the culmination of everything that they have done. As an aside, they're getting old. I'm pretty sure Flea is in his late 30's

    It is decent but I think it could be better. This CD is missing some of the hard funk that I identify with the band. I think this is one of those albums that I will like better with time. The second disc is much better than the first.

    I think they could have cut out alot more songs, making it a great single cd rather than trying to swell up a double disc.

    Even Anthony didn't think it was a great cd, as told in a MuchMusic interview

    You know that nub on top of PA? yeah there
    I think they did well enough. Id of loved it if they stuck to more of their heavier funk sound, but its still worth a listen.
