I can only speak for myself: I never liked it.

This shit didn't get the Best New Music tag. I fucking guarantee that when they put up their year-end top albums list, this shit comes in higher than a bunch of the albums they did give the BNM tag to.

It's gonna be some backtracking revisionist shit. Watch.

This is an album that is going to age well, if anything. They give it a 7.9, but then it will show up at like #11 or 12 on their albums of the year list.

Watch. Mark it 8, dude. This is not 'nam. This is bowling. There are rules.

Not that any of that matters at all, but I bet I'm right. Just sort of thinking out loud here on this Sunday afternoon.

I love Feral, and I wish there were more songs like it on KOL. The short Burial style manipulated vocal is great, and when the bass comes in...watch out! I don't get the mediocre reviews it's receiving. I think it's one of their strongest albums. It seems like a lot of the criticism it's getting is based on its length, which I think is perfect because every song is good. All of their other records have week songs. If Hail to the Thief was 8 songs long it would be their best record, as long as they chose the 8 best songs.

I'm actually going to agree with you here.

It's missing that one big song. That Idioteque. That Pyramid Song. This album doesn't have it.

I think Lotus Flower is as good as some of those BIG songs we're talking about. I think the greatness of songs like Separator (my favorite), Give Up The Ghost, and Codex is how understated and easy they are, so it's okay that they're not earth-shaking. But I understand it's not going to really bowl people over. Lotus, however, does have that element.

I have no problem with understated songs, I just feel like the album could use a track that isn't as understated.

I would think that Bloom is not understated. It doesn't reach a huge crescendo, but it is frenetic and poly-rhythmic.
