I bought their album after I saw them on tour with Pearl Jam this summer. Pretty good show they put on. I had heard of them before but wasn't really into them until I saw their set at MSG.

Set at the show I was at:

10 AM
Your Touch
Everlasting Light
Next Girl
Too Afraid To Love You
Howlin' For You
Ten Cent Pistol
Tighten Up
I Got Mine

I like the band, but from the new album I only like Tighten up and that is it. Attack and Release was much better.

I'm lovin' Brothers at the minute. Favourite track off the other albums is probably When The Lights Go Out though.

Only heard of one of their songs - "Lies" due to Lie To Me, but really liked it so will end up checking out the band :)

Been interested in them. Which album should I start with?

"Brothers" is a great album and the only one I've heard. Not a skippable track on it. My favorite is probably "Everlasting Light".

I'd say the new one is probably a good place to start. That or Thickfreakness. The ones in between are really good but I'd say those two are more immediate to let you know if you want to invest in more. Thickfreakness is a bit more Hendrixy than the others too. Try this from it:

I'd say "Attack and Release", some of the catchier tunes (e.g. Strange Times)
