No, I took the time to write up an opinion that I don't truly believe in.
But yes, I'm serious. I think they are outstanding musicians but I really don't like his voice and I enjoy the songs of theirs in the past that featured less of it and more of the interesting intrumental sections that I like. I like the production, I think the drums sound awesome and the guitars continue to do some pretty interesting stuff, I just really don't think the singers voice is made to carry a 3-4 minute rock song like they've written. When he keeps it low like in tired tiger and the beginning of parts in different places I don't mind it but it's when he's trying to sing a chorus that it just sounds hollow and weak to me, good for background vocals but I just don't like it in the forefront as it is.
I've been a fan of moving mountains in the past but the direction this CD took is not the way I had hoped they would go and I'm dissapointed.
