There’s undoubtedly some clever stuff going on under Beware and be Grateful's surface, but when it makes you feel nothing you have to wonder, what’s the point?
It's funny how your criticism is that the record doesn't make you feel anything, when presumably that was the opposite of their intention when they abandoned the intricate, math-rock leanings of their earlier stuff.
Not sure how I feel about this yet. I did love their first two EPs but I suppose that style doesn't have too much longevity. I'm a sucker for the singer's voice though.
