I'm with you Legs. It's an acquired taste. It's not what we expect from Paul, but it is a really good listen for the band that's backing him up. Hearing Paul sing more than makes this worthwhile. IMO! The more I hear My Valentine it grows on me too. I also would be willing to bet that the next one will be the guitar album. Nothing wrong with him expanding his horizons.
