You can be passionate about music and not make glib, frankly egregious comments about artists who make music you don't like case in point: the majority of the userbase here?

I think chief gripe atm is that nothing really moves me. Yet.

I think the problem sometimes is the review has been a few days coming and the serious chat has already gone down on the old Bon threads.

There’s lyric quotes and analogies and everything.

Then you get gushing review followed by a chorus of more gushing in the comments and someone needs to pop that balloon a little for fear everyone starts frothing themselves up too much in a frenzy.

Balance to the force. You feel? Zak's just doing his bit for Queen and country

Maybe I'm getting too old but the edgy teen persona many here like to portray has had it's day for me, a long time ago

'edgy teen persona'

if this is in relation to zak that's hilarious - you know how to hurt him

'being a piece of shit'

there's an art to great cynicism

neither zak or myself have it - but maybe one day

we'll keep practicing

"(...) we need more fanatics (...)"

Wrong in every possible context.



Album is his most inconsistent yet imo. Wasn't really paying attention during the last third though (for conceivable reasons), so I'll have to listen one more time, but I feel this is average at best, some very enjoyable songs in the middle notwithstanding.

I like the first half. Second half sounds like he decided to slap some production on stuff he recorded on his phone under the folder "Ideas". 22 grew on me though, so maybe this will too.

My least favorite thing about this record is how status quo it feels...very much a slightly more lighthearted/warm take on 22, A Million / Big Red Machine - and it's not as good as at least the former. With that said it's hard not to let bias in the door when something is so directly comparable to a former work but doesn't quite measure up; this is still a very strong record on its own though. Had he released this as his 3rd LP and kept 22 on the backburner, would I have been hailing this as his greatest achievement? It's quite possible.

I think the most disappointing thing is he could recorded something that beats the self titled at its own, or a similar, game.

That album nailed down a couple of great sounds but overall there was still some room for improvement.

Turning the chipmunk up to 11 for two albums wasn't an improvement.

A few more tracks are better than I initially thought, but I think this is not going any further in my estimation. Pretty good but I hope he does something else next time around.
