I'm just kinda bummed that this was the style that got double album treatment.
I'm sure the album's great, I've gone through it a couple of times, but I don't really like it that much. Feels like the best parts are those that recall the two previous records. Not a fan of the front-and-center vocals either.
When played live though, I bet these songs fit right in with the rest. I'll have to see in what direction they go next.
