What I think is, I downloaded it, listened to a couple times, could not find one thing to like about it and deleted it and that's the end. I won't buy it and I won't listen to it again. As far as I'm concerned, it's more of the same crap.
love the album, however, i think i probably exaggerated to myself how good it was. it's definitely their best in awhile but i'm not sure it has legs. parts of it are kinda reminding me of 'make believe' which i couldn't stand.
"Nothing in this album is 'revolutionary'." That's pretty much how I'm feeling at this point. But sometimes as I keep listening to an album it grows on me and I end up loving it. I never throw in the towel on my favorite bands after just a few listens. I like to give them every chance to make me like whatever it is that they are currently doing. Time will tell.
