    This album's just a big ol' monster with a heart of gold. It's inaccessible, sure, but once you get past the noise this is an incredibly unique album that deserves a whole lot more love than it gets.

    It took me at least 4 listens for this album to properly catch my attention. Yes, I still think this is their weakest album. Yes, this is their most difficult album to get into. This is an album that you have to actually be in the right state of mind and atmosphere to be able to actually listen to in a bearable manner before appreciating it. I just finished re-listening to it and there's more tracks that I find notable that failed to strike me as interesting in my previous attempts. If you're new to AnCo and are trying to listen to their whole discography, consider giving this album more than 1 listen before judging it in its entirety and discarding it forever.

    1st album of theirs I got into. They went far more 'pop' but I warmed to that style too. This album is only too way out if you have lightweight ears.
