I would say that the record got as much negative reception from large media outlets as it did positive. Not to mention that on pretty much every site I read other than this one, as well as the more musically inclined people that i usually hang around, the band is pretty hated.
As a music major I feel that my knowledge of music makes me enjoy them more. They do a lot with simple chord progressions and borrow a lot from other genres like RnB, hip hop, and classical.

EDIT: but I understand a lot of people just don't think they are special at all. I'm just not one of them.

I wouldn't say that at all.

edit: well, let me rephrase myself. seemed to get as much negative as positive, but as a whole, it really wasn't close to one of the most acclaimed records of the year.

A lot of albums that are considered classic now didn't get great reactions when they were first released.

Those people generally like better music, however.

I think Lydia's Illuminate and City and Colour's Bring Me Your Love will still be talked about ten years from now.
