I'd say it does have a level of gimmickry to it -- slotting together styles like that -- but it's done surprisingly tastefully I find, and in places they intermingle better than I ever thought they could. Occasionally though the bm influences feel very much in the background and only there for the sake of it / not adding much, and that's when I think it's at its worst

that's fair. to my ears, the styles almost sound meant for each other. their roots spring from similar places of rebellious thought, though obviously for completely different historical reasons. at least in my mind, that's why they thematically mesh really well

It's not even that it's gimmicky, it just sounds like shit. It's cheesy af, the lyrics are bad, the vocals are oftentimes grating. This is just a dogshit product

"Zeal & Ardor’s latest album, follows unpredictable song structuring which to some will yield two reactions: confusing or intriguing."

That should probably read "confusion or intrigue".
