So far, so not-good. It all just sounds so half-assed.

Info on "The Optimizer"
Produced and arranged by Alejandro Crawford, the band’s live show video instrumentalist, the “Optimizer” is a 44-minute aural and optical journey synced to the album, featuring video & CGI work by Andrew Benson, Emilio Gomariz, Geoffrey Lillemon, and Chris Timms. Most importantly, it introduces a new way to experience a streaming album – visually and socially. Jump through the timeline, share song and video previews and enjoy social interactions in real-time.

Listening to this album, at least sober, is pretty boring

Breaking away from your initial sound is one thing.

Becoming completely shitty is another.

Based on the comments so far, I think I'll be skipping on this album. Their debut album still remains flawless.

I happen to enjoy it quite a bit, and the optimizer is the strangest damn thing I've ever witnessed in my life.

The optimizer is pretty cool. Only four songs into the album, its pretty mehhhh. They are trying too hard to be weird and different.

I feel like they used to have a really fun, original, catchy sound. Then they tried to act so hipster/indie like they were too awkward for fame and now they just make overly weird music for the sake of confusing people.

Listening to it now, I'm actually really liking it a lot. It sounds like a natural progression. I really loved Congratulations though, and I think it was divisive because there was no "Kids" or "Electric Feel" on it. If you actually listened to all of Oracular Spectacular though, it's really not far off from the second half of that album. It was quite clear early on they were moving in a psychedelic/experimental direction. Don't know why there are still people left expecting them to be poppy when they recently went almost two years without playing "Kids" live.
