gordie.I appreciated his attempts to "break the mould", but at times it felt a bit unhindered, like he had no one to tell him "stop, this is too much". Some tracks I dig, but largely I feel I'm listening to a poor NIN tribute (if I wanted to listen to Ghosts, I'd listen to Ghosts... no offence but Reznor did it better). It's still a style that I like, but not what I expected from Joel really. That aside, it's also painfully long IMO... could have cut down the size and trimmed the fat to produce a much greater album I think.
Definitely agree that it was a little too long, some of the tracks aren't really album worthy when very similar sounding tracks are also on it. That said, I really dig Pets and Seeya. Avaritia was WAY WAY better in preproduction, he tweaked the main chord progression and now it sounds like garbage IMO
