OK, this is good music, but it seems more of a "statement" saying "Critter's back, here's some songs from him to show you, and we'll work on more" to appease the "Willie's gone, OCMS is gone" doomsayers.
Well, I'm a doomsayer. Willie was SUCH a huge part of OCMS vocally and "presence"-wise. I don't really know how he can be replaced. I enjoy this music, still, but the vocals are not up to the quality of WW. I'd do anything to have him AND Critter back in OCMS, but then again, that may be the original problem.
I don't know what direction OCMS is going to go now, but if this is any indication, and if the live shows I've seen since WW's departure are, then I'm worried.
