Fountains of Wayne - Traffic and Weather

Not alot of buzz about this new release from FOW, and deservedly so. This album is a subpar effort for these guys. It does have some decent singles on it (Someone to Love, Traffic & Weather), but a large share of duds that don't work. I think the issue is that they don't develop a sound on the record. Is it alternative? Or rock-pop? Or country? Hard to say. The guys have always been genre-jumpers, but this record just doesn't ever find its voice. Not one of my more favorite releases this year, which is disappointing, because I really like these guys.
