I don't really "get it" either. But I think Blood Mountain is even more overrated. I mean, I like it... but I don't see how so many people can hold it so highly. I just can't make sense of these things. :eyes:

No, not that JOP album. That album was a HUGE dissapointment. Jon's out of ideas at this point, he's just ripping himself off endlessly. There's a few good tracks, but come on, this is the man behind albums like Streets, Edge of Thorns, Handful of Rain, Dead Winter Dead, etc... He shouldn't be embarassing himself like this.
Zach Stevens on the other hand is at the top of his game right now. That Circle II Circle album is absolutely phenominal.
