Music Magazine NME reports that the album “did not represent them as a band now”, and as a result they were scrapping it, and instead will record a new record, due for release in 2009.
Now, there is one of two reasons behind this. Either the band/label didn’t like the negative feedback it was getting from those journalists who had heard it; or else the fact that it has been sent to some people, will probably leak, and as a result will become one of those “lost classics”. I’d pitch with the first, but the second will probably play into the equation too.
