Big Step Back

Yes, I'm stuck on earlier days of The Posies and enjoy some of their newer music, but there is no resemblance of 90's Posies identity here at all. This album is too eclectic and the past few albums seem to be trying to hard to be different, which could be turning off some fans.

What we get now in 2016 from the Posies is some pretentious 'indie rock' interspersed with some left-wing claptrap (their idea of pandering to the eggheads at Pitchfork). R.I.P.
