Okkervil River | The Stand-Ins

While I was writing that last post, I was listening to Okkervil River's upcoming album The Stand-Ins (Sep 9 release) and I gotta say, it's a really boring album. I loved their live show at Higher Ground last year but this album just isn't doing it for me. Where's the passion they showed on stage? This album sounds like something an artist would release when they're just trying to complete their obligation to a record company.

Maybe it'll grow on me but I don't know how many more listens I can give it. Too many other top-shelf albums to listen to these days.
