The Fifth Blog of Christmas: Silversun Pickups - Neck of the Woods (2012)

This is why solo albums were created.  This does not play to what I perceive as their strength or sound; it's fine, just not as good as either of their last two albums.  That being said, if I had to give a one-word review, it would be "tepid."

What's most disturbing here is that since 2006's breakthrough Canavas, the Silversun Pickups are beginning to show signs of an Interpol post-Turn on the Bright Lights fall into less interesting music.  Let's hope the next one is back on track; otherwise, I'll wait on other reviews before plunging back in.

Sell-back pile 1.
