As a lifelong Connells fan, I was thrilled that this release, even after 20 years since the last one, sounds like the Connells. You need not worry that the band had drastically changed their sound or that the loss of Huntley on lead guitar negatively impacts the band. Mike Ayers NAILS the Connells sound. The new tracks are awesome leaving me kind of wishing for less remakes (Gladiator Heart, Rusted Fields, Hello Walter) even if they are better than the originals and more new stuff. If you like the Connells this is a must purchase. If you dont like the Connells; you are failing at life.
