Overall I would compare this album to a recent dining experience I had. I love mushrooms, and jumped at the opportunity to pour mushroom sauce all over the dish I ordered. Then after a mouthful I realised the sauce was full of onions. I hate onions with a furious passion, they are the abomination of vegetables. Not only was I disappointed, I was left with an empty feeling in my stomach. Much like I felt after listening to this.
