eh I guess difference of opinion. The album was definitely different than anything they had every done and I can't say it is my favorite but I thought it came out really well.
awful, no, repetitve, yes. the repetitve-ness in choruses like closer, we owe this to ourselves, to the wolves and depraved are what keep me from going back to that record more. Im pretty sure stephen did that on purpose though, it just wasnt my favorite. in my opinion, one of the best songs theyve ever written has one of the choruses with the most words in dismantle. repair.
