The pride of Sac-town are back with their sixth album after a long hiatus. Was Showroom Of Compassion by Cake ($10) worth the wait? That depends. Despite being touted as a new direction for the band — and being released on its own label after recording finished in a solar-powered studio — Showroom is filled with more of the same old Cake you've come to love... or hate. It's like slipping into a pair of old, trusty sneakers — they might feel great on your feet, but it's up to you to decide if they're stylishly distressed or simply worn out.
