What a crappy album. It completely wastes the band's best asset: Adele Bethel's vocals. And, I can't figure out why because nothing on this record comes close to replacing them.
I'm not sure what is supposed to be attractive, new, or interesting here. Most of the album sounds like it is being played by a machine. The vocals are sunken behind leagues of dull, techno-sounding muck. If someone is actually playing instruments here, they suck and could replaced by a teenager with a computer.
Only because I liked their second album and loved the third did I listen to every excruciatingly dull moment of every tedious cut. I kept hoping that the monotonous, uninspired beginnings on the cuts were a setup for some raging breakout, but by track 6 even I started to catch on. Not going to happen. The cuts start boring and stupid and continue boring and stupid. And then the next track is boring and stupid.
I was stunned when the album ended. I was hoping at least one cut would display something of value.
Rarely have I encountered an album that is as bad as this one.
