Considering Endgame bored me to tears after the first five songs, I hope I don't agree with the majority on this.
Not sure what you mean by majority... The few people here who were unimpressed enough to say it's not good? I think it's decent. Albums normally take a few spins for me before I can pick out what I like, what I don't, my favourite tracks, et cetera. My early impression is it's slightly better than Endgame, which I thought was better than Appeal To Reason.
