Anything Box - Recovered

Recovered is one of a few Anything Box releases in the 00's to feature material recorded in the band's best years (the early 90's). The material on this album seems to come from the same time period as Hope, which was a decent album, but not the band's best.

The songs on Recovered aren't anything mind-blowing. They tend to be a little darker than much of the content on Hope, and there really aren't any standout tracks. Recovered is just mainly a better album than anything else (other than the Future Past EP) the band put out in the 00's. While Anything Box continues to put out albums, it remains clear that their best years are more than a decade behind them.

Baleeted? No. This album isn't great, but it's passable.
