I agree with most of the points you bring up, although I would have liked to see you talk about how this differs from their older work. Good review nevertheless.

you make some good points, but i have to disagree with one part, mainly towards the vocals and lyrics, which in my opinion is one of the strongest aspects to the album.

One of my favorite records, but I have to be honest; it took a long time. At first the whole affair can come across as hookless, especially to the impatient & disinterested listener (see: the reviewer). But it's a wholly-earnest effort, brimming with soul and completely inspired. Gets better with every listen.

couldn't agree more with user: morning...

this record takes patience but it's well worth it. Frederic doesn't have the vocal chops to carry a record? He's done it more than half a dozen times (not counting Wallpaper which wouldn't be the best example of his vocals).

Trying to pass any of this criticism off on the "new line-up" just shows your unfamiliarity/ignorance of the band.

This is a fair opinion on a first listen, but there's really so much more to the record than what this reviewer details. In the years I've had it in my rotation it's gone from a 7 to an absolute 10.
