I do agree that Hourglass is a really weird and somewhat out of context song. I quite like it instrumentally, but the vocals are a mixed bag

Yeah it's not so much that its a terrible song, I just don't dig Maynards contribution to it nor do I feel like it has any real connection to the rest of the album. Would have been better suited to Puscifer.

I like Man Overboard. The only reason I said that is because of the cadence that he does is akin to what is in Hourglass. I am not a fan of Old School Hollywood though, or most of that record for that matter.

I don't mind Man Overboard , was more using that as a reference as to how out of place Hourglass sounds on this album which then impacts my ability to enjoy it. Just sticks out like a sore thumb to me and don't like what Maynard did with it

its embarrassingly weak, the lowest moment for me probably in the middle of disillusioned when he is whining..."heey....haoo...ouooo...haaaoou..."

Thanks for sharing, too bad I got a "Sorry, this promotion is not available in your region" error :x I'll stick with the Spotify animations for now.
