Suffice it to say that I did not hear an album so terrible through all of 2015.

I feel sorry for everybody named Gabriel.

Almost everybody.

It would bring a tear to my eye if it weren't so unspeakably stupid.
My question is, what happens if a new artist comes along again that makes the sort of music these guys deem as crappy? Are they going to have to go on yet another epic quest to restore things?

I would give it 8/10 for the comedic value. I don't even want those 130 min of my life back. Well, except for that part where it really dragged.

I think for the next album, they should re-tell it from the NOMACS side of the story.

I gave it a 1.5/5 on RYM because I don't give out enough of those, but in all honesty I have no idea how to rate it. It's horrible garbage, but I got what I wanted out of it. No complaints here.

It's a terrible album but I'm going to listen to Three Days now any time I want to laugh hysterically. Well, no, I'm never listening to anything off this thing again. But that was fucking hilarious.

YES

That one should have been released as a single, not The Gift of Music. Just really confuse the hell out of everybody.
