Japanese pressing of 2008 album from the Alt-Rock trio features one bonus track ('Rooftops In Spain') plus enhanced content. With These Are The Good Times People, new and old fans alike should find little problem joining the party with PUSA circa 2008. 'I know this stands up strong against our entire catalog. And I hope our fans agree. We've finally gotten to the point where we can let the vibe come to us and then we jump out at it and reel it in. I think we've really brought our `A' game to this album. I feel like we've given as much as we ever have on this record.' Forgoing the director role he has assumed in the past, Ballew says a democratic dynamic steered the project and greatly improved the energy of the band. Playing to their strengths on this CD, Chris concedes, 'I've just kind of learned over time that it's a lot of stress for me and I don't necessarily end up with something better. I just decided to lay back and not care while caring deeply, letting the cream rise to the top.' EMI. 2008.
