If it makes Chris move on stage, then it's definitely good in my book
Moving to Mars is just pure eargasm with the piano and all
I think you're right. Not a lot of people like their newer stuff but I just see it as growth and evolution of sound. I read that Chris said he'd played it safe for a long time now and maybe this is it. It's either a hit or miss when something changes the slightest bit - I love it either way, old and new.
