This. Although certainly it doesn't completely lack "that sound" of AOtP, and that is a some small victory. Surely it could have been worse. (And "Manic Monday" probably is...)
Ok, i'll be honest and say i think this whole "betrayal" concept is bullshit. Not just in this case - coz as hatzt says, 'WLAE' actually does have some of the band's earlier signature sound still in it, especially the guitars - but pidgeon-holing an artist or group in general to grow and/or to achieve success in the way I as a fan want them too.
Yeah, but you know how it is when you love an artist. And I just adored the Bangles; was even in their official fan club. The sound on the early records just sounds so organic and pure and unlike what was being played on U.S. radio at the time.
Good way to put it.
