Super psyched for this! It sounds like they've done a really good job on the new material without bowing to current trends (aside from the fact that disco/funk is back!).
Along with Slayer and Fugazi, EWF is one of those bands I've seen a million times, but unlike those other two I think this new album will have me dishing out the cash to see 'em another time.
I suppose this thread is really only interesting to me, so I'll have to reply to it myself.
