Yes, I was very underwhelmed by it. It's easily the worst album Russian Circles have released, I think.
I thought "Burial" through "Memorial" was the best part of the album, the second half of it in other words. The first few songs didn't grab me much at all - only small bits here and there. And the last track with Chelsea Wolf had enormous potential, especially with the sound the band created to compliment her vocals, but it ended up just being three and a half minutes of the same thing. Beautiful, but lacking direction. Kind of like the album as a whole.
Never whistle while you're pissing.
