Last album was such a phenomenal and pleasant surprise that I'm a little bummed out at how mediocre this one turned out. I wouldn't say I dislike it, but your last paragraph nails it; I share the exact same sentiments. Starts out strong, then has a weird flirtation with too many different and loosely seen together ideas. Passin grade, but certainly a minor letdown in the grand scheme of things.
