It seems to me that everyone who hates on Fantano only does so because he's a hipster. He always presents his points politely and never presents his opinions as fact.

This is exactly why I like him. Plus he has no bias at all and he tends to know his shit.

I actually agree with a lot of his gripes with the album, especially the clean vocals which just seem forced and kill the momentum at certain points. Keene's vocals have grown on me a bit, but if I had my druthers I'd rather have most of them cut from the album. I feel like they could have figured out a different way to progress their sound without relying on mediocre (at best) clean vocals.

Well... duh. I mean it's almost like he's a parody.

Despite his hipsterness and constant trying to be funny, yes, he did a very good job reviewing it. I don't agree about the clean vocals killing it though. I've loved Keene's vocals since the first album and always wanted him to do more, so I'm glad they finally did.

I think Keene's vocals and the softer parts are what make the album stand out. The tech-death portions are excellent, but I wouldn't have been drawn to the album the way I am if it wasn't for the clean vocals and other "odd" things throughout the album (especially on the Autotheist Movement).
