I expected a lot more out of this album, but it just ended up all blending together and not in a way that was a success. This album was also too long to be justified given that the album rarely does anything different across the over an hour of play time. I'm sure the group has better work out there and this is likely just a dud to start with, but this album doesn't do much to encourage me to seek out more of their discography.
