Sooooo are they intentionally trying to make every song sound the exact same?

haha you're not the first to think that. i think most of that can be attributed to matt berenger's vocals. they work at a certain level because his deadpan delivery can very easily skew the line between sincerity and ironic distance, but consequently they oftentimes sound just plain monotonous. i think repeated listens reveal that he's very subtle in the way that he sings, though i sure do miss the days where he would belt out a scream every now and then.

I only listened to it a few times so far but I don't feel it's nearly as good as Boxer or even Alligator. Kinda disappointing.
