Thanks very much. I worked hard on this review because this album was something I've been anticipating since EIIKM. It still hasn't grown on me, but it's nonetheless a strong album.

I don't listen to MCS and haven't heard the album, but I definitely liked the review.

That means a lot. Thank you! I'm glad my writing style works regardless of whether you listen to the music.

Since I started listening to them around 6th grade, being the angsty kid I was then (less so now), his lyrics spoke more to me then than they do now. Some of the lyrics I like, but a lot I don't find to care for. But to each his own, right?

nice review. though i find the evolution of this band intriguing. if you look at the progression of albums and underlying themes of each of them, this album defiantly holds to its own.

though i feel the closing moment of MDL are a little bit weak compared to previous releases, i like the craftsmanship equally to that of the previous albums. IATM was the aggressive album, CTTM was the game changer, EIIKM was the heartbreak one, and MDL is the one from the ashes of heartbreak.

thank you for your honest review.

You'll understand this record when you're older (say in your mid 20's). In the long run, this album will quite possibly be their masterpiece.

Yeah I agree. Great review, dude, but I gotta say his lyrics on this album master a unique, biting satire and pop-culture relevance that you just don't get anywhere else.

Good review man. I agree with a lot of your opinions. I feel like this band is my band. Like, I feel such a strong connection to them, and was a little disappointed, which I have never been with anything of theirs. It's still really solid though, and will probably grow on me.

This is an awesome review that I almost completely disagree with. Right about the relative lack of Moog though.
