So a lot of you are probably convinced that alot of my rigid standards are picked up from Ultraboris. Well let me drop a cold hard Ultraboris...ism on you.

"Ya know, the first time I heard it, I didn't like it at all. So I didn't listen to it for another two weeks. But then I went back to it, gave it another chance, and now I'm a better person for it. Let this be a lesson for you all, everyone. Give things another chance. That includes Drano. If you can survive drinking Drano once, I don't see why you can't survive it twice."

So about two weeks later, I gave it another chance. And another. and another.
Needless to say, I've come to like it. Not love it, mind you. I still think anyone who puts this at #2 on their albums of the year is overrating it (the new Van Halen, Rush, and High on Fire smoke the hell out of this, so at most it should be #4 ), and I still think having this be a double album was mistake, but I can't quite bring myself to hate it. I personally think it should have been an album composed of all the rock tracks and then take all the soft stuff, use Eula as a skeletal framework and build around that, especially since Eula is awesome.
You know its true, bunny rabbits we have got lovely little fluffy bottoms. We do. That's why people often mistake us for Danny Devito.
