trans-continental hustle

earlier this week, i got the new gogol bordello album "trans-continental hustle".

i was listening on repeat for a few days. it's good, but feels a bit flat. i mean, it sounds like a re-hash of their old material.

for example, my favourite track from the new album is "my companjera" [youtube]. it reminds me so much of "wonderlust king" [youtube] from the previous album.

also, on this new album, there is too much repetition, like the way he sings the same line more than a dozen times within the same song.

overall, on its own, it is a good album. but knowing they've done better before, i'd say this album is not amazing or anything.
