ATRU kills this, the songwriting is so muted here

muted? hell no (it's not atru level but still)



people really need to learn to judge this without constant atru comparisons

Digging: Me and Him Call It Us - Loss

the songwriting is very muted. gone are the sidewinder song structures and in their place are much more standard repetitious verse-chorus tracks.

eh I didn't have a better way to describe it, but there are definitely more hooks and more standard songwriting on this. it's less interesting structurally than the dynamic songs presented on atru.



and yeah they made a classic album so their work will be judged by that standard. deal w it.

plus one of the things i loved about atru, the absolutely alien guitar tones, are gone here. i've seriously never heard guitars with that tone besides on atru

It's not that they've become less interesting (to me at least), it's just a little less all-over-the-place than ATRU and more smoothed-out, seamless. Rather than jarring transitions between soft and heavy, they tiptoe the line a bit more on here, which if you ask me, is kind of a good thing.
