I'm actually happy to see a lower score, instead of something in the 80s. I liked the instrumentation on this record, and actually liked it a little better than Curses. Lyrically he's tough, and the album is a bit darker than his last, which makes me like it. I think he gets kind of trapped in his own style of writing, and trying to keep the listener engaged throughout can be difficult.
