I agree with what the review is trying to get at here the album feels broken into parts that were then thrown in a random order. Some songs are thick and suffocating, while some rock out and they band doesn't really seem to know what they are going for a lot of the time. The subdued instrumentation can be underwhelming but I feel it also makes the guitars so much more hard hitting when they do decide to try and stand out a little. Even then though it is not like they build up or anything, they just hit at some time cus 'why not!?' Songwriting is definitely a step down from their previous release.
