I agree with the U° remark. It was definitely a quality CD but for the first time in U°'s discography not a single song stands out for me. In fact, I routinely skip it when it shows up on Shuffle. Even "Lost.." (considered not as good as "Define..") has stand out/memorable songs.
Yep, exactly. I will say that I really like, "Catch Myself Catching Myself," but nothing is catchy, has a sing-a-long chorus (or even a single sing-a-long part, really), or has an astounding performance/portion in any song. It flows all right, but there's nothing that you have a craving to hear.
Even now, I get the urge to listen to stuff from Spencer's other 3 albums with the band (namely, "Moving for the Sake of Motion," and "Breathing in a New Mentality"). It's not a bad album, but it's not a 94% album, it didn't feel as dark or heavy as some claimed (just filled with a deeper sound).
To make another analogy, it's like how some had described Switchfoot's Hello Hurricane
I'm not sure if you listen to them at all (I listen to mostly Christian music, save maybe 5 bands), and the point that the reviewer was getting at is that while it wasn't a bad record or anything, it was poor by the standards of such a well-built veteran band. That's how I felt about Disambiguation
