    P.O.S. is technically correct but he calls himself P.O.S The artist name should be changed. Power to you, thud.

    The lack of periods on the album art is entirely aesthetics. Five characters is better then six.

    Come on, people, just look at the album covers. No period after the S on any of them.

    I mean, P.O.S has always had a very rough, raw sound, even back on Audition. It's part of his sound as an artist I feel like, and it's something that I've come to expect from him. So all of these naysayers crying about 'production value' just seem silly.

    I remember when Never Better dropped and everyone complained about how bad the production was, and how Audition was simply 'better'.. now everyone's doing the same thing with WDELH and giving praise to Never Better. People just want more of the old because they don't know how they feel about the new.

    I don't like some tracks on the album but once you get rid of like 3-4 tracks on the album it's fucking perfect. Still a bigger fan of Never Better but that might be because I listened to it for 3 years straight.
