I did 69 (haha sex) because it just doesn't quite deserve that green rating. It's got some really meaty, catchy cuts like "Slide" and the title track, but it is also bogged down with songs that are repetitive and kill the flow.

Nonetheless, still a worthy album and I look forward to their next release.
