After far too long away, the Gin Blossoms have returned with a new album Major Lodge Victory. And what a good comeback album it is. From the opening track Learning The Hard Way, a classic piece of melodic pop-rock through to the album closer California Sun (coincidentally my 10000th track on last.fm), this is an album that doesn't disappoint. Other stand out tracks are Come on Hard and Heart Shaped Locket. Maybe it's unlikely to win many new fans as it doesn't really stray from the template of their two previous albums, but for those who already like the band it's going to be a welcome addition to this year's new albums.
