how are all these people saying this album is disappointing? It's FANFUCKINGTASTIC, so much awesome riffing mixed in with their traditional melancholy tracks. this mix, plus the album-worthy bonus tracks make for an epic album. seriously didn't think these guys were capable of sounding so.. metal. wow :)
The diversity of styles might be a bit overwhelming at first, but it gets more and more consistent as you dig deeper  so true, this album is definitely a grower. wasn't a huge fan at first listen but i really love it now.
Bad? Disappointing? Seriously, listen to it more than once, let it blossom and grow on you. It's a truly amazing record, but it's definitely not flawless and gets cheesy at times, on some tracks they're just 'trying too hard' to rock on. The diversity of styles might be a bit overwhelming at first, but it gets more and more consistent as you dig deeper. Still, I love it how Kele's voice has matured since their debut.
