Half the time in this album, I have no clue what the lead singer is saying. I feel like he might be intending to mock Brit Glam-ish rock vocals (Meet Me at Muster Station and parts of Get Over), but most times he sounds drunk (Little Spoon) or in the shower (Meet Me at Muster Station Pt 2) or drunk in the shower (Bread Ends) -there is this liberated, I don't give a f, nobody is around, I'm naked in the shower type methodology in the vocals. (All of this is praise by the way if you can't tell.) That particular vocal methodology lends itself to playfulness, but never at the expense of the emotion or raw power delivered, which I feel happens alot when bands attempt this big rock sound. In case you are wondering, the distorted sound IS huge. I mean it sounds MASSIVE. The distortion never hides a thing though and there is never any filler as every song feels concisely delivered and every element lends itself to a sense of purpose in the overall momentum of each song.
4.5 out of 5 if you ask me. it's been a while since I had an album on repeat and I hardly even realized it.
