They did that for 2 albums, a change would be good for once. Let's just hope is a new change. What do you mean? They are going to retain their sound. Most likely what will happen is that they will restructure their formulas for their songs. Instead of catchy pop jingles we will have some real music like what we had back in the Xero days. It might not be the "correct" public move for them. But who knows! Times have changed.. perhaps a change will bring them more money and respect. You speaking for alot of people there. It goes both ways. A bunch love the LP sound, a bunch want a new LP sound, a bunch want concentrated version of both the new sound and the spice of the original LP. LP can't please everyone ..! And if it does, it's not the end of the world. There's a crap load of other music to listen to. I rather them stray than stay in the same repetitive formula that sells. I wanna listen to music, not studied, and proven generated song patterns that sell. But that's my opinion. Yours is you want that so hey, who knows you might get it =).
