In the first part of my talk I will review the traditional search for continuous gravitational waves" (CWs) from deformed spinning neutron stars. This will cover the astrophysical motivations and models, and some of the challenges and current approaches to the data analysis problem. In the second part I want to introduce the "Bayesian revolution" in this field, and how these more powerful tools allow us to extend the orthodox searches in a natural way. In particular, I will describe a new search method for long-duration transient CW signals, motivated by the superfluid two-fluid model of glitching neutron stars.
