I liked when they were covering Method Man, but the last few I heard didn't do anything for me.
I think it's better than their last couple albums, but not as good as the first two. I say give it a listen. It makes me smile. Also, check out one of their live shows. They are an absolute blast, if you can stand being surrounded by the Hot Topic kids for a few hours.

It's every bit as good as their earlier stuff. Which is to say not intricate technical compositions with deep meaning, but just good immature fun. Many would argue that it's not technically "good" but I argue that it's not supposed to be. It's certainly not going to win them any new fans. But for people like me, for whom they have been a guilty pleasure for years, it's great. I guess what I'm trying to say is if you like their other stuff, check it out. If you don't, you won't like this either.

I know I'm late to the party, but I want to get in on this while it's still 2013. My list, off the top of my head, in no particular order:
Akron/Family - Sub Verses David Bowie - The Next Day Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels Daft Punk - Random Access Memories Fuck Buttons - Slow Focus The Knife - Shaking the Habitual Mindless Self Indulgence - How I Learned to Stop Giving a Shit and Love Mindless Self Indulgence Kanye West - Yeezus Danny Brown - Old Sigur Ros - Kveikur Deaf Heaven - Sunbather Pearl Jam - Lightning Bolt Marijuana Deathsquads - Oh My Sexy Lord Darkside - Psychic Melt Banana -Fetch Gogol Bordello - Pura Vida Conspiracy Deltron 3030 - Event II Tomahawk - Oddfellows The Dillinger Escape Plan - One Of Us Is The Killer The Devil Makes Three - I'm A Stranger Here
This indeed has been one hell of a year for music. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to this board and (almost) everyone on it for introducing me to so many great artists. There are several titles on my list that I otherwise never would have taken the time to listen to. Words cannot express... And all that sappy shit. Thanks.
