It is, I really like the ideas they have on this, it's just not pulled off as well as it could. I think the new release will be stronger unless Driver completely changes the sound again.
Also to note is that this didn't start out as a Kayo Dot release so who knows! And of course it's not as good as Choirs of the Eye or Dowsing Anemone with Copper Tongue... but what IS? He'll never beat those albums.
Speaking of which, who likes Dowsing more than Choirs? I do!
