Damaged Goods

You can stream the new Gang of Four album Return the Gift (sans the bonus disc of remixes) if you click here. I'm listening to it now and personally I think it's a bit pointless for them to re-record these classic songs, especially since the reissue of Entertainment!, their classic debut album, just came out in the U.S. Well, I suppose the point is that they don't own copies of their masters, but that's still no excuse. All of these re-recordings are fine, but they hardly improve upon the originals (in fact they're generally weaker). Regardless, it comes out on October 11th, but you can preview it for yourself (thanks Brooklyn Vegan).
