I'm not sure if it's just us fans noticing all the false lyrics or if people unfamiliar with their music sense it. Not that I care about the lyrics in the new stuff, but songs like Hatebreeder just feel cool with the right lyrics, as there was emphasis put on them to work with the song. And not to diss the new album, but it's a sorrowful example of how a once-great band totally forgets the epic style of music that made them a force in their element. With the new album it's like a fish trying to swim in mud. They felt more at home with the HOB album style, which was at times musically excellent, after the horrendous RRF album, but fell right back to the ditch. Alexi has vast musical potential and it would be good to listen to outside guidance from the right people (like me) who look at it from distance. Sometimes the style or form of art one wants to do currently (out of interest or current feelings) just simply isn't where his gift is at. And this is not to say do the old album part 2 or force out something insincere, but simply the sound, the songs as entities, the feeling, what elements should be in it, etc.
