A whole album? I'd previously read it was only a few songs. This is a cause for celebration!

A whole album, apparently. And 2 singles came out already. One sounds like a very bad Christmas song and the other one like the old stuff, only worse.

Oh, I've heard worse by them. Playing the two singles on youtube now. You could argue that they should have left good enough alone, but I for one regret not seeing them live in the 70s, at least on the last tour, which took them to Tokyo.

Here's how I rate the two new singles, which I presume will be the strongest songs on the 10 track CD:

I Still Have Faith in You -- B+
Don't Shut Me Down -- C

Will I buy the album? Sure I will, their legacy is intact.
