I think Nick hit the nail on the head. I'm not an album person honestly, but that one right there...yeah, you don't even need to listen to the whole thing to know it's bad.

As for albums that I've listened to fully and by artists I actually like, I'll go ahead and say this...

Noctourniquet - The Mars Volta

One of my favorite bands, truly. And I was really looking forward to this album, and it got an honest "meh" out of me. I couldn't get into it at all. I understand that artists need to change and expand their horizons in order to survive the music business these days, and that's fine. I always tell people that when they berate Kings of Leon "for going mainstream" or whatever. But this...I doesn't even sound like the TMV I know and love. I don't know what happened to Cedric's voice, but he sounds more like Marilyn Manson in this album. That would be fine and dandy if he were Marilyn Manson. But he's not. I was also disappointed that there were no Spanish songs on this album, but that's just personal preference.

So yeah. There's that. Sorry Razor Leaf, I know you love this album haha. It has two songs I like from it, one of which almost made the cut for my top songs of 2012, but yeah. Other than that, I don't recommend it, unless you're hardcore into TMV and just have to listen to everything. People say Octahedron is bad, but yeah...idk man, I think this tops it.
