I can't speak for everyone but personally: it's an album where Max Bemis saw himself as superior. Bemis's writing has always been great because while he's attacking ex-girlfriends or society at large, he knows he's just as bad in his own way. It's part of the reason Admit It is great and Admit It Again is not (that's probably the clearest example on the album of my issue; it's practically begging to be compared to the old work). Throughout the album Bemis looks down on everyone that is not him and his wife. In addition, the love songs didn't resonate in the way some of his had in the past (I have no problem with him singing about his wife. Personally I love "Cemetary" and "Crush'd"); they kind of fell flat and seemed more by-the-numbers.
