    Well, I listened to all the samples. Not taken in by most of them, but the clips are too short for me to really get the feel of them. Here's first impressions:

    "No Way" like the melody and keyboards. Hated the plaintive vocals. Really grated on me.
    "Sisters" very grandiose. Sounds overly so in a short clip. Need to hear full version.
    "She Likes to Hide" bluesy. A Black Crows kind of feel. Has potential.
    "Darkness Of Mine" slow, dark and passionate. Will appeal to POS fans; not my style.
    "Innocence" Like this one. Good guitar feel. More upbeat, but still that POS ethereal thing.

    Overall, I'm sure POS fans will love it. I still just can't really get them. Too dreary and emo for me.

    POS are one of those bands I really don't want to listen to anything until their albums actually are released.

    Never thought I'd say this, but I'm not a big fan of those samples.

    We'll see what happens once the album is out, though.

    Excellent point. Patience is key. Most of their stuff is not generic enough to digest on just a few listens or from samples.
