new CURSIVE album "Happy Hollow"

I didn't see a thread on this, but what does everyone think of the new Cursive "Happy Hollow"? It was released I think on August 22.

It's the official follow-up to their great 2003 album
"The Ugly Organ"

I hope to pick it up soon.

I picked it up on release day. I'd say it's pretty good, but doesn't come close to The Ugly Organist, which is among my favorite albums from the past 5 years. I'd say the new one is pretty critical of religion/Christianity, so I could see that being offputting to some.

It's what you call a "big" album..lots of instruments, time changes, etc. and the vocals are as strong as ever. Very god so far, Ugly Organ took a while to grow on me too so I'm giving this one plenty of chances.

Domestica and Organ are great albums. I didn't like Happy Hollow.

Tim Kasher needs to focus more on The Good Life, which their cds Album of the Year and Novena on a Nocturn are among my favoirte albums ever.

Cursive got old and lost the cello.
