One thing I don't like is that it borrows some things from AA. And rather than sounding like he was trying to tie the records together, it comes off sounding more like he has trouble coming up with new ideas.

Jury's still out, not voting yet. This rating scale is wack though. Isn't "above average" the same as good? Seems like it should just be Terrible, Poor, Average, Good, Excellent. Not Above Average.
fair assessment on the rating scale, I'll keep that in mind for next time.

I would have to disagree though, even though some of the tracks are following the concepts of AA I still think they are really pushing farther into their creativity.

Listened to the album a few times now, it's still not really getting through to me yet. Whereas Ambivalence avenue headed straight to my heart and mind on first listen... guess i'll give it a few more listens and see if it creeps in.....

I liked the album. "Take Off Your Shirt" is probably my favorite track.

I really think that AA was a better album, but thats just because it sounds like he uses a lot of the same chord changes on mind bokeh, and i cant really get down with the cheesy synths.
