Oh no.
I'm surprised that I had never heard of these guys before, since they seem to be so established.
But this record is horrendously cringe-worthy. Everything sounds so generic and wannabe that it becomes impossible to enjoy even the most slightly interesting ideas that actually exist from there to there.
