A brilliant course correction.
There's no way around it: Widow's Weeds was a disappointment. From the band's perspective, the aim was clear: enlist Butch Vig as producer, swing from Better Nature's electronically vibrant pastures back towards the shoegaze-laden grunge rock that launched them to fame in the mid-00s, and then reap the benefits of a satisfied fanbase. Unfortunately, very little of that went according to plan.
