It's not gonna blow minds but they're well beyond their prime and are working musicians so I respect and support that.
Compared to a band I like on a similar level Relient K, they have completely forgotten how to write songs, even with the power of Jesus Christ fueling them. I don't know what happened between their B-sides album and collapsible lung, but everything since then has been nigh unlistenable garbage.
JEW, however, has been forgettable at worst, but never unlistenable.
Collapsible Lung was a pile of horse shit. I like the new one though!
