Quite a different review than others that I have seen *Pitchfok,* but I personally love this album.

I found this quite boring in places to be honest, and a lot of it extremely analogous.
I think the score is dead-on.
This band is talented, but they are better than this.

If you average the two scores it's probably around what it deserves, at least imo.

Yeah, that was pretty much my point. The best way for me to explain it may be this: I listen to a ton of albums while I'm at work, and this is one of those that you don't realize it right away when it's stopped playing. Van Occupanther on the other hand almost distracts me from getting work done. It doesn't allow itself to be background noise. This just doesn't command your attention that way.

I loved the trials of van occupanther and still listen to it regularly. I haven't listened to this album yet, but the two preview songs they released a month or two back really didn't do it for me.

I hope this record doesn't let me down.
