Well they've gone from using softer material as preludes and interludes to the heavy songs to making it part of the main attraction. I can't be mad or call it teh gay but it's a little bit of a letdown.
I'm totally in love with the beginning and end of each record, but it especially drags for me in the middle of Green. Still haven't had a chance to totally absorb everything yet so I'll give it a few more listens. I'm also disappointed with what a song titled "Cocainium" ended up being on what's supposed to be the heavy disc.
Part of me wants to say "should have just made it a 50 minute album" since Yellow, Bones, March, Little Things, Sea Lungs, Eula, Green, Board Up, The Line Between and the outro are all killer.
