Just bought. Wow. I'd kind of given up on these dudes after their follow-up to Colors, but this album is all kinds of beautiful.
I tried to like it, I really did. Just can't get into it as much as into the others. I even dig "Great misdirect" more than this.
I am simply missing the "over-the-top" melodies that made Colors (and the others) as great as they are. I mean, Parallax II is very good, no question, but I just didn't need another "crazy for the sake of it" record. Parts on it sound to forced for me.
