I think that's very optimistic, Kevin.  You heard cautiousness.  I heard
conformation that there has been no progress towards the (a) new album since
they recorded the two songs we've already heard.  I heard Pete saying
they've talked about doing an album before and are no closer to actually
doing it now.  I heard him say:

"whether this album will come about I really don't know"

"[recording a new album]  would require me to write a whole 20-30 songs and
spend 6 months to a year in a recording studio. At the moment I'm not sure I
see that happening."

That sounds like a lot more than cautiousness to me.  You want me to ignore
that because he used the word "the"?  It'll take a lot more than that to
convince me now.
