Great review and I agree 100% with your score. This album seems to be scoring higher on other websites but I think 75% is really representative of this. Like you wrote, there are some great songs, but the weak ones really hurt the album.
Yeah exactly, especially with only nine songs they all need to be top-notch.

Too bad though, because this has potential to be a classic. I love the concept behind the album/what they're going for here.

Have you heard the 2 bonus tracks?
Yeah. I don't like "Sun" at all and I can't stand Edward Sharpe so they're 0/2 there with me haha

Texturally and sonically this is probably the most interesting record I've heard since Age of Adz. It also kind of reminds me of Silver Apples in certain moments. There are certain moments that are less memorable than others but the songs that work with this style work exceptionally well. Really enjoyed it. Probably my favorite album by them next to Clouds Taste Metallic.
Man, every Lips fan has a different favorite album seems like haha
