Cold War Kids - Robbers & Cowards

Has anybody heard this yet? Is it any good?

I hear "Hang me out to dry" on Left of Center on Sirius all the time and think it is really good... does the rest of the album have a similar feel and is it worth a buy?

These guys have a great sound, so if you dig "Hang Me Out to Dry," then you will probably like the rest of the album.

I would recommend trying to track down their first three EPs. Most of the tracks on Robbers and Cowards are rerecorded versions of songs from those EPs, but the versions on the EPs sound much better. The EP versions have the raw sound that these guys came to be known for; but, on the LP versions, it sounds like these guys were too preoccupied with trying to recreate the sound, and instead, they sound like weaker covers of themselves. Great songs, though!
