Freaking awesome dude.
As for the album, I'm having trouble loving it. I think it needs to grow on me. Right now I marginally hate it.

Haha I've been so excited for you guys to post this review! I figured it was either going to be an AP darling or panned by the staff gods. Glad to you see you love it like I do!
Also, your review is very well written. I found it to be remarkably pointed and concise. Also, you did well to address fans of the previous album without muddling your focus by diverting yourself completely to prior discography. It serves as a great hook to draw readers into your review. Lastly, your vocabulary reflects the writing style of the band, so it's impressively evident that you truly immersed yourself in the work before writing. Haha, not that it matters, but you really floored me with your review.

The first time I listened to this album, I hated it.
The second time, I started to get what the band was going for.
The third time, I realized this is one of the most unique, enjoyable albums I have heard in a long time.
Excellent review! Definitely give this album a few listens.
