I was trawling through the thread just to make sure I wasn’t the only one.
Can’t get on with it…had the same issue with Brutalism last year. I’ll just have to accept they’re not a band for me. I realise @jordan_229 has already addressed some comments made about the lyrics…personally I think the issues they talk about have been covered with more subtlety, across all media forms, so i don’t agree. That said…subtlety doesn’t make the lyrics any “better”, it’s just personal taste.
Generally though, I’m just not grabbed by the music. It sounds less angry and more just generically “heavy”. My loss, I guess.
