Anyway, Hurley is awesome. Not as good as the Blue Album or Pinkerton, but it's right on par, maybe even better, than Maladroit (which I enjoyed a lot).
At this point, I have a hard time taking the band seriously. Ever since Maladroit, Rivers has been mailing it in with the same formulaic, lowest common denominator pop song structure on every song. Make Believe was barely passable and the two after that were pretty terrible IMO.
If I get around to it I'll give it a listen, but it's definitely not on my priority list. It's a shame too because I think those first four albums are really quite good.
