Even after four or five listens, determined to find some merit in the album, I could find absolutely none at all. Lyrics; trite, sentimental crap. Singer; sounds like the death-throes of a rabbit with Myxamatosis. Horrible and strained cod-emotional delivery. Music; droney, horrible, samey, no particular craftsmanship. Songwriting; ditto.
Am I missing something here? I am genuinely shocked at commercial, and especially critical, success of this band.
