Nope when it comes to a review I take the album for what it is and analyze it. Opinions of past works play no part, nor do I let any shred of personal sentiment color my analysis. Perfect example being Meshuggah's most recent album, which I ripped apart and took to task for being sloppy and uninspired.xZ1mM3r wrote:I actually like the vast majority of the album. You think they suck because you are comparing them to past APC songs. You are comparing them to other MJK projects I assume. If you take the album as a standalone collection of tracks, it's actually really good.
Yeah By And Down is the same song.. but that doesn't bother me. It feels like it belongs in this album, in this setting. Not in a greatest hits album tacked on the end, or in a live album.
And to be honest I picked 8/10 simply because I knew you picked 7. And I knew I had to like it more than you did cause you just talk shit... So if you talking shit on the album gives it 7 then I have to give it an 8

After another couple of listens now nothing has changed for me with Eat the Elephant. It is a 7 out of 10 album, and just barely at that. Eat the Elephant, Delicious, DLB, and Get the Led Out are entirely forgettable and as I said before I have issue with them putting a copy/paste barely changed version of By and Down on the album. It is incredibly lazy and it surprises me how people are just skimming over it like it is no big deal.
