Well, yeah, it was definitely going to go number one here, but I haven't heard many good things about it, the guys are way past their prime, and maybe they should take notice of that, but then again, if they're still getting Number One records, why stop?

Well, I read in The Advertiser today (local paper), and the album was reviewed and it got 4 stars. I was a little surprised at that, but then again, alot of older Aussies will lap this album up.
