I quite enjoy the album myself...a LOT! Especially since this is the first
album (aside from the TG Now EP) that TG's put out in over 25 yrs.
While their are really only 2-3 songs that I find to be "okay", the rest of
the album I find very enjoyable & definitely still has that TG sound to it.
I also notice that whenever I play it, the 67 min. seem to fly by quite
quickly...and whenever that happens, that's always a good sign of a great
As I've listened to albums that were only 35 - 40 minutes long and I can't
WAIT 'till their over as they aren't that great musically.
Sure it's not the 70's anymore & it doesn't sound quite as "new", or "fresh"
& "raw", as it did in the 70's ( especially since we've been desentized to
the 70's-80's sound as we've heard it all a ba-zillion times now.
But all in all, The Endless Knot still kicks ass in my book.
