great review Jeremy, you and I share a lot of the same opinions that I had over this record. Personal favorite track is Diamond Lightning. Agreed about the out of place lyrics on Heaven Is A Ghost Town.

I really enjoyed this album, definitely not their best work but can't help but love the sexy vibe their music has.

Strongly disliked this album first few listens. Luckily it has grown on me. Really fun album. Lyrics are pretty poo poo though.

Definitely not as immediately likeable as Omni, but a quality album nonetheless.

This album had to grow on me for at least a week, but now that I've taken time with it I love it. Prog-pop is the perfect way to describe this.

This record has some really really great songs and some mediocre. Overall like it. Im still trying to figure out heaven is a ghost town and make sense of what he's getting at

I think you're wrong about the tapping. Although not as dramatic, it's clearly in some of the songs. For example, the beginning of Cold Company.

Really like this album. Its not trying to be super different while not completely disregarding what the band is best at. The album is a good mix of OMNI and their previous works. I honestly hope people see this as the bridge album between those eras. I do think it was cool when they consistently pushed boundaries but their is something sensual about this album and while it may not go down as a classic it is very enjoyable and the sort of album for a long drive home with a significant other.
