I wouldn't say I think Whitechapel is objectively bad (They are pretty solid musicians actually and their songwriting has improved tremendously on their past two records), but they definitely aren't the most intellectually stimulating music on the planet. Bottom line of why I like Whitechapel: They are good at what they do and I really like Phil Bozeman as a vocalist. With the surprising quality of their new album, I actually like them more now than I ever did before.
