Ive warmed to some of the songs after repeated upon repeated listens (although the last few albums have been like this, and it shouldnt really be like this with DM and long time DM fans).
Ive purchased the vinyl (shame you cant order it with JUST the tracks you want!) and the digital 24bit download, but only the following tracks made it onto my music server:-
Cover Me (good but NO NEED for the last two minutes of the song)
The remixes are interesting, in some tracks the music sounds better than the album version.
For me, their weakest album to date. Even more hate for this than Exciter or SOTU. The excessive use of distortion on the vocals is a killer for me. It's unnecessary and unwanted. It doesn't add "urgency" or "power" to the vocals. As for Dave's songs, waste of time. All his songs within the DM framework sound the same, and these are no exception.
I traveled half-way round the world to see them live on the last tour, I wont be doing the same this time round.
