This album was a complete disappointment... The review is completely biased IMO
The new drummer just doesn't do it for me on this record. The drums completely kill this record from being a great one. And also, the drum transitions are almost if not completely bland and it hinders the band from exploding full circle in their writing.
Fair enough you didn't like the drums on the album - you're allowed that opinion. But "it hinders the band from exploding full circle in their writing" strikes me as one of the stupidest, most meaningless things I've ever seen posted on this site. Maybe you were trying for some kind of deep, insightful point? But if so, you lost the plot man - it comes off sounding like pretentious, flowery bullshit.
