After a three year hiatus, King Cobb Steelie return on Ryko in a much more slimmed-down form, with only three of the seven members remaining. As you'd expect, the band's sound is also pared back to the basics. Gone are the atmospheric jams dripping with dub, replaced with a more muscular pop groove. There are still some really nice moments, like "Skyscraper" and "The Stinger," but the whole thing falls quite a bit short of previous efforts.
