    It should be mentioned that out of the four members that make up the Black Lips, three of them are singers. This in an attribute that's worked in extreme favor for the band in the past, as the overall sound of garage rock can sometimes get a little bland, so the idea of placing different voices and tones alongside each other is an easy way to introduce a variety most bands lack.

But what's different this time around is the apparent absence of the blatant and mostly out of place distortion that overtook the singers' voices on their previous records.
