True, JS. i just think Option Paralysis did a much better job of working in softer sections. Crossburner is still a 'heavy' song of theirs, it's just slow-churning and rather predictable. Get why people dig it but it's not my cup of tea



And DEP has always been sort of a one-trick pony in regard to going apeshit, and one could argue their innovation here w/ songs like Crossburner is to be admired. I just wish theyd gone about it in a diff way

This is nowhere near as good as Option really. It's really formulaic in places. hate how the singles just predictably recycle the chorus after the alternate sections. It's just lazy.



that being said, they just do it so well I can't help but enjoy it

yeah I particularly feel you in terms of the self-titled track and Nothing's Funny. These are very solid songs but their structuring feels fairly neutered

Yeah, very strange how the song ends and then the chorus kicks in again, like: http://www.lolwut.com/

interesting discussion going on here.



I'd say that TDEP do everything well, but the raw emotion and sense of urgency on the chaotic parts straight up kick my ass. When I Lost My Bet is the musical equivalent to a stroke while having an orgasm. And it last more than one of those would

"and one could argue their innovation here w/ songs like Crossburner is to be admired."

That is what I think, but I respect your opinion.



What makes this album lack somewhere, is the flow sometimes. Every song seems very dynamic with different time-changes, but somehow it isn't flowing all together as well as, say, Side A of Miss Machine.



That is, however, the only minor problem I have with it.



And well put with WILMB, Moreira ^
