Their new album is out and, although it's pretty good, I gotta say it sounds like they're getting a little lazy.  They've been on a creative hot streak since Sgt. Pepper, mixing up their sound, adding some post punk and some Krautrock noise to the stew, but this one seems to have a lot of slow, unfocused meandering passages like the old Mental Illness and Take it from the Man! days.  Not necessarily bad, but the songs all seemed to run together back then, just one big long stoner dirge with whiny vocals.  Still, 20+ years of pretty solid awesomeness is nothing to take lightly, I guess.
