There isn't a thread for this in the music forum from what I can tell. Anyway. Now that it is out I wanted to discuss with people.

PS - Joe, we know you don't like it, so kindly don't troll this thread without your quick quips about how you think it is shit.

Musically, I really enjoy it so far. I think the part that lets me down the most is the fact that the lyrics don't seem to correlate with the whole Levi character that was the main focus of the viral marketing campaign.

I think the vocals are the weakest point of this album and I also think most people would agree. The instrumentation is great. I wouldn't call it a bad album in any way.

Honestly, I don't see a problem with them. I hear Robert Smith and Isaac Brock in a lot of the inflection. Nobody seems to mind either of those vocalists but then they want to make childish comparisions to Count Chocula.

That was my first comparison-reaction
Their first revealed song completely took me back to that Blink 182 song that features Robert Smith.

But the real mystery here is:
Transylvanian accent ...or Antonio Banderas' first gig?

Agreed. For a while I couldn't figure out what his voice sometimes reminded me of, it definitely gives of a Cure-ish vibe.

I think the album is really good. I guess it's not for everyone, but the more I listen, the more it grows on me. When I first heard Piano Wire I was intrigued cause it wasn't what I was expecting, but the melody got stuck in my head and I found myself coming back to listen more. Then I heard Baby Shakes, which made me think I might not like the rest of the album, but even know that song grew on me a little. I'm glad I picked up the vinyl. I think my favorite track by far is Black Death. That quick lyric/melody/rap like thing he does in the middle is genius.

Yeah, I can definitely see what you mean. I'm just saying that the delivery is kind of... weak. Well, not really weak, maybe kind of underwhelming.

this is not good and does not deserve all the fandom simply because of the gimmick advertising

I like it. The vocals are strange, but they've grown on me.

I didn't catch any of the advertising for it, i first heard of it like two days before the stream was posted. I liked it and im glad i was able to go in with untainted opinions.

There's some stuff here to like. There is also some stuff that makes me see why many people don't like it. The comments about nobody liking this without the campaign/brand new connections are just flat out wrong though, and make me wonder if certain people around here have ever realized that sometimes people like stuff that they personally do not like themselves.

Bestial is such a damn good song.
