    I will, as I always have, buy this cd and give it a chance. But I gotta say, after following GBS since their bar days, I haven't particularly wanted to play much of their recent stuff after one listen. I don't enjoy their pop efforts, except for Love Me Tonight, they did deserve to have a hit with that, great song. But otherwise I'm left saying meh with their past few albums. GBS got less interesting when they got a drummer live imo. Plus Sean mcCann's voice seems to be shot, I do not enjoy this raspy sometimes falsetto thing at all.
    I will buy the new cd and hope I enjoy it, however after previewing the tune Hit the Ground and Run, seeing as I don't like bluegrass and the Masterless Men have that covered in NL anyways, I'll pass on that song.
    Good luck to them though. I know they are incorporating more musical influences and that's fine, but maybe a month of playing the pubs at home may spark something familiar but different. The pubs would have to be empty on a Thursday night tho, so I guess that won't happen. :)

    well well well, people don't call us to play in NL. If you charged a little less than $70,000.00 plus and played a little longer they might just start phoning. Never spent time touring the small towns of Newfoundland swearing the allegiance to the button accordion. Perhaps if they did they would garner more respect from nl'ers. I'm glad they used Mrs. MacMaster's name, look at her popularity and I'm sure that she embraced her fiddle roots touring Cape Breton, they love her. Too bad you can't say the same for your fellow NL'ers.

    Still can't go their music. Like Nickleback, every song sounds the same.

    Every song sounds the same?

    You might not like them, fair enough, but accusing them of monotony seems like a lame critiscism. They have three different lead singers who sound nothing alike, they use all kinds of different instruments, and perform a wide variety of traditional and original material.

    Nicleback, I can see, they have one singer, and every song is in the same tempo and key.

    GBS has their issues, but I can honestly say predictability is not one of them.
