I'm torn on this album. The problem being that, by all accounts, this was the logical progression for the band. However, having heard what they are capable of, I feel slightly let down. Many of the songs feel like they were written on an acoustic guitar and not another thought was added to flesh them out for the album. The lyrics aren't amazing, not that SWS ever excelled lyrically, but here they are almost cringe-worthy at times.
The album is alright, I have it on in the background, but I sold my tickets to their show when they started releasing singles.
No disrespect intended to the band, they made an album they wanted to make and I am sure a lot of people will love it, it just didn't work for me.
