Yeah, I think Oli's aware of it too. In 'Join the Club' (I think?) the bridge has him growling "given up" repeatedly. It's a bit too obvious of a nod to me for him to not be aware of the comparison.
And yeah, I agree. This album sounds like what Nu-Metal was supposed to sound like, IMO.
Honestly, there were just touches of it here and there, and it was used really well. Some of them are my favorite part of the album.
