The "transitions" in Sunbather were the best parts of the album.

I didn't listen to enough new stuff in 2013 to make a list, but man that Sunbather album sucked dick.

Is Maiden supposed to release an album in 2014? That would be cool because at least everyone would expect the #1 album to be garbage instead of being blindsided by it like this year.

I gave Sunbather an honest chance. I found the black metal sections to be very repetitive, horribly-produced and the shrieking vocals were grating. The transitions from black metal to post-rock were very awkward and inorganic. I appreciate genre changes, but the ones here were just far too drastic and poorly-executed for me to enjoy. Once the transitions were made the actual post-rock elements were pretty nice and at times, absolutely stunning, but it still wasn't enjoy to salvage the album from how poor the heavy sections and transitions between their different genres were.Lastly, I found the interlude tracks to serve to no purpose and just tacked-on to add length to an already bloated, overlong album. They're a talented group for sure, I just found the album to be a boring mess.
