The exact effects of that equilibrium on the upcoming Comets album is something fans have to wait until its August 8 release to decipher. But an early press copy of Avatarreveals that affairs with outside projects have brought the Comets back together sounding even more in tune with one another. Miller's vocals break through the fray more often, Kushner's piano parts give the music increased emotional complexity, and Miller and Chasny's guitar arrangements are as arresting as always. All said, Avataris probably the band's most captivating release yet. If there ever were a case to make for straying to make the heart grow stronger, these impressive talents have a secret to success locked into their fabric. — J.M.
