It's available on Tidal. Listened to it. Sounds like most Monkees' songs: well done, but totally forgettable pop music. Fairly impressive that they managed to put out an album that sort of sounds "the same" after 50 years. But can't imagine listening to it a second time.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

I gave it a listen too and pretty much concur. I just had to wonder why they bothered.

Some from this generation might get to know and even dig them.

 

But I agree... too pop and not enough psychedelic/progressive to my liking either.
