 fwiw, i really wanted to like this, but instead i just found it dull. don't get me wrong: there are definite pleasures in dissimulation and incoherence, but the vast majority of bands that indulge in them don't have the vision to make it sound like more than a lack of focus, and i would put the mass -- or at least this album -- in that category.
