I don't understand either. Initially I wasn't very enthusiastic about the first half of the album but now it's growing on me. I really like Epochs, Minerals and Annie's Box and I hope I'll start to like the rest as well ^^
I'm glad that the percussion instruments got rescued, really I am, but the rest of this track ... eh. Maybe this one will grow on me. Of course I have a headache after the first half of the album, you can understand.
