Would you say that this is, in fact, not a comeback, since the artists have been here for years, rocking their peers and putting suckers in fear?

Andrew, the last concert that Anonymous 4 gave in the area, in 2004, showed some problems that seemed to indicate a worrying decline in the group's sound (something I chose not to harp on in the article). Shortly after that, they more or less disbanded and were not doing much as a group for a while. So, yes, I would describe their return to touring, recording, and something closer to their original, winning sound as a "comeback."

(sorry...I thought an LL Cool J reference would be me no mind)

Unfortunately the LL Cool J reference probably soared right over the heads of the majority of readers here, just as it did over mine.

This reminds me of a time at the start of my career when I was editing a story and over-hastily rewrote a writer's line about how a new group "smells not like teen spirit but like rotten fish," because what was "smells like teen spirit" supposed to mean, anyway? (I still blush about that one.)

Andrew, don't make me pull out my jammy. ;-)

Sir, we are not interested in your private activity here, only in a discussion of musical phenomena and musical reception, and musical and cultural facts. Please don't abuse your posting privileges.
