I've messed around with this album for months and just can't put a finger on what's wrong with it. It could be the record label issues for the band at the time or the sixteen session musicians that appear sporadically throughout. The band deems it aggro and I feel it is more progressive than any other AS record. The heaviest cut is "God Damn" which sounds like earlier records in terms of intensity. Horn and symphonic arrangements ground a majority of the record. I dunno, today it's a 3.5. Tomorrow it could be a 4 or a 2.
