In general, I love the individual tracks on the album. However, there is a lot of variability in how much I like each track. This is partially due to how the album switches between different styles. The stark contrast affects my initial impression of adjacent tracks. However, if the tracks were to each be heard in isolation, I would likely enjoy all of them. Perhaps these different styles are standard for the band, but as a listener that is not intimately familiar with their work, the album feels disjoint. As such, if the album felt coherent, I'd give it a 5.0, but it's so disjoint that I feel compelled to give it a 4.0.

Overall Rating: 4.0/5
Favorite Song: "Shake That Ass"
