I'd say Epicloud is tied with Ghost for the weakest DTP album. Not that Epicloud is bad but I really have to take back some of the ridiculous claims I made about it being AOTY before any full songs were released. I've heard the record about 10 times now and some of this stuff gets old quick. I wouldn't call Lucky Animals
"fucking awful" but I am getting to the point where I want to skip that song every time I listen to the album. I've noticed that a lot of people are calling the new version of Kingdom the highlight of the album. It's cool and all but people seem to be overlooking the god tier By a Thread
version of Kingdom that shits on both studio versions.
