Unfortunately, Cave-In's recent recorded work has been spotty at best. Since moving up to the major labels, it has suppressed its penchant for eight-minute sonic explorations in favor of attempts at making radio-friendly unit shifters. While the band certainly can't be faulted for wanting to swim in the stream of commerce, the results have bordered somewhere between bland and boring. Touring behind their most recent album, Antenna, the band has crisscrossed the country several times, both with this summer's Lollapalooza and on their own. With any luck, the experience will have made the band much looser and more willing to invest the new material with the same spirit that made the old stuff so amazing.
