i like it. there are some songs that i'll end up skipping, but it's a good album.

the one big complaint i have though is that the demo version of "Come Back" walks all over the album version.

I sadly dont think that I like this very much. I definitely enjoy several songs (including "Come Back," which I prefer to the demo, "In Chains," "Corrupt," and...well, probably something), but I'm disappointed. I only hate "Spacewalker," but the disappointment factor is high. Angel stomped all over my lowered expectations, and "Wrong" really came out with all guns blazing, but this just sounds like Exciter, only with fewer gems and more filler. Four listens, and it's really just 4 songs...13 times. Meh. I look forward to the single mixes of whichever singles the band releases. Those have often vastly improved on so-so album mixes, in the past.

If You Shout, I know what you mean about 4 songs 13 times. I guess thats what I was getting at with the 'whole album melding together into one' comment. There is definitely a sound that runs throughout the entire thing. Sometimes with albums like this, the subtleties reveal themselves over multiple listens. And sometimes the album is just what you heard on the first couple listens. It remains to be seen what category this one falls into. There is a lot going on in the songs. Lots of layers and sounds. So I'm hoping the album will give back as much as I put in. There are some good tunes though. I really like Fragile Tension. At first I was disappointed by the album version of Come Back (the demo was fucking gorgeous) but I think its good in its own right. Love the 'Close Encounters' deep synth on it

I would say Ultra. I love Ultra, but its seem a lot of people were disappointed by it. Coincidentally, it came out at the same time as Pop did

There are definitely songs that will be skipped on this, but overall, I'm enjoying the album. Not as good as Playing The Angel, though.

And I prefer the album version of Come Back over the demo.
