More recognizable songs, less cohesive of an albumJanuary 20, 2015
I got into NUFAN late in the game, just before Tony's death in fact, so my first listen to many of his albums were bittersweet knowing there would be no new music to follow. Going into More Betterness! I already knew over half of the songs, due to their greatest hits album, live album and compilation tracks. Most of those songs are great, and I was looking forward to hearing the rest. It's hard to say, but there is some filler here and the standout tracks are the ones available on other releases. I see this as the first album featuring a more mellow approach (which hits it's peak on their second to last album, Keep Them Confused) while trying to shake off the slightly heavier nature of its predecessors. Because of that, the album feels like it is searching to find its voice. Personally, I prefer the later direction of the band (Feel Good Record is my favorite) so it's still nice to see them begin to shape their sound. A solid effort.
I would recommend this to a friend
