I enjoyed my first listen a lot. Second was meh. Sounded way better on my headphones than it did through my car stereo. But I was also tired as all hell and half way through a three hour drive to Vermont in the dark.
This album gets a lot better in the second half with "Cause I'm a Man" and "New Person, Same Old Mistakes." I dunno, I don't see myself coming back to it often, and I'd probably listen to one of their other albums instead.
The drums were so driven and psychedelic way back on Innerspeaker. I thoroughly enjoyed this album, but it's a much more produced and thick sort of beat and I don't think we'll be hearing the same raw power anymore. Also Let It Happen sticks out like a sore thumb to kick off the album, a 7-minute song right off the bat and then Nangs? I wish Parker elaborated on that track instead cause it's a crazy piece.
