Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

...AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD

The Century of Self

2009-02-27

This Austin-based rock band has made some changes in the seven years since their last release. Their line-up has gone from being a quartet to a trio and they've moved from a major label to their own start-up label. Their sound is not much different than on previous releases, but this album simply can't compare to 2002's "Source Tags and Codes". That album was a bit more accessible while this one is at times poorly mixed and over-produced. While I think this album is okay as a whole, there isn't a single stand-out track on this one.
