Simple Minds - Graffiti Soul

Just wondering if anyone has heard this yet? It seems to be getting very good reviews from many publications and as Spotify is blocked here, I'm intrigued to hear if its actually any good as I thought they did some great stuff back in the day. The fact that their "day" was probably 20+ years ago now obviously makes me feel much older than is right.

Seems to be doing quite well in terms of sales as well, so I'm thinking, someone must have heard it?

I have started to listen to it (not heard it all the way through yet). But what I have heard so far is pretty good. The new single 'Rockets' is quite catchy.

Finally got hold of this and wow, I never saw that coming. Its a damn good album, very good in fact. Definitely give it a try, even though I'm sure many people will discount it because of their recent output, don't let that put you off.

I actually prefer their recent output to what I've heard of Graffiti Soul so far. Not giving up on it yet though...

Its not as immediate as Black & White 050505 was for me, but after a few listens it just clicked and is getting better with every listen personally.
