It was a heavy Volbeat week, since I got to hear the new one...

"Rock The Rebel" and "Guitar Gangsters" are both still great. "Seal The Deal" is still a total pop version of them, but really good.

The new one tries to have it a bit both ways, and I'm not buying it. They're totally playing for the mainstream, but the pop songs aren't as good this time, and they reuse a couple of melodies from the old stuff on the more pandering songs. It's still good, but it's a step down, for sure.

They don't really feel like the same band anymore.
