The pitch-shifted vocal on Kill V. Maim is among my least favorite musical moments of the year and Scream is absolutely horrible.

Otherwise, pretty good stuff. I never expect consistency from a Grimes album, but I got a lot good tracks out of this one. Flesh Without Blood and the title track are my favorites. The new version of Realiti is getting far too much hate, it's not even that different.

Underwhelming record..."Realiti" and "Flesh Without Blood" are obviously great, even if the previous version of "Realiti" was a bit better.

Only new track that really knocked me out was "Artangels"...that's an extremely clever pop tune.

What bugs me is that some tracks or some moments in the album are pretty generic, giving me the feeling that some songs could belong to any other current pop act, something that would've never occur in her previous efforts.
Maybe Grimes found out, sooner than expected, that she needed to step up in terms of "financial freedom" and felt that she needed to make something more generic and more consistent with what's out there now to stay afloat (it's just a conjecture).
My favourite tracks are "Scream", "Life in the Vivid Dream" and "Realiti" (even though I prefer the previous version). The first two I mention are the direction I expected Grimes to follow if/when drifted away from her best-known soundscapes.

I'm really digging this album. I'm not sure where the inconsistency comments are coming from, unless everything is being judged by the standards of Flesh without Blood and Realiti, because the thing holds together well and has a compelling "dance floor horror" (I stole that from the AV Club) vibe going on. The track Artangels is a high point as well.

I'm enjoying it a lot too. I loved the demo version of Realiti (one of my most listened to songs this year), and I'm enjoying this new version as well.

Annoyed I still have a month to actually get my own copy of it though, and Amazon doesn't have Autorip to give it to me now.

Yeah Travis must've suffered a knock to the head or something.

It sounds like some SOPHIE shit that RYM would eat up. Nails on a chalkboard for me.

What makes the songs on this album "Jurassic" life? Why not "Cretaceous?" "Permian?"
