"As Good As New" features fourteen strong songs - a mix of collected Australian ballads and dance music with some more contemporary folk and early country songs. A strong sense of place flows through the album - songs of personal attachment and loss, lyrics examining and celebrating strong attachments to a particular area; to 'home'.
The contributions by other talented musicians have added depth to this album, while retaining the trademark Us Not Them spacious quality. There is a uniting style across the album, once again uniquely Australian in character.
