I've been listening to the tracks online this evening and it sounds like they're back on form. I've never been a big fan of the tracks they've released as singles - preferring the album songs that are largely overlooked by many people. Plus I like their slower tracks - which are obviously less danceable so not played at clubs.
I'm going to have to give the CD a proper listen when I get a copy in early June (after my next pay day - damn this once a month payment malarky!) but the stand out track I've heard so far is "Running To The Edge of The World". Like it lots :)
For reference my favourite MM CD of all time (so far anyway) was Mechanical Animals (minus some of the single releases :p).
Edit: Actually "I Want To Kill You Like They Do In The Movies" is bloody good too. Times in at 8 mins 33 secs so fairly epic. But very moody with great guitar! I may forgo ordering this online after payday and raid my piggy bank and pop down to HMV on Monday instead at this rate...
