Amputechture is pretty great, if you skip the first and last songs.
I've only heard "Wax Simulacra" so far from the new one, but I thought it kicked ass.
I've heard Amputechture, but am admittedly not as familiar with it as Frances the Mute. It's fair to say that it's an intermediate step between the styles I hear on Frances and Bedlam though.
And yeah, Wax Simulacra is one of the couple highlights on the album.
