Only listen to the first 12 tracks. Last two drag down the album so much.
This album is also really top heavy, meaning the best 3-4 songs out-do the rest by a mile.
I agree, the middle is really weak. Tracks 1-5 are fantastic, 6 is okay, 7-9 really drag it down then 10-12 are excellent and the last two are throwaways. Trimming some of the fat would have really helped this album.
