    This is a great album and it's a grower, which is always a good sign for me. I listened to it on a bike ride and found the second half weaker, but it's all grown on me now. My favorite track is Muscle Memory. The line "face it like a wimp, face it like a man, either way you're facing it." is super inspirational.

    "I have to wonder what exactly happened to make Win Hands Down one of the more disappointing albums I've listened to this year."

    Sorry, but that's as far as I got.:fu:

    Well written and well argued, me and you would disagree though, easily the album of the year (so far) for me!

    Believe me, I have no issue with anyone who disagrees with my review. Varying opinions make the world go round.

    I'm actually glad that others enjoyed it more than I did. I mean, it wasn't like I wanted to not like the album as much as everyone else after all.

    Interesting take on the album, and I'm pretty sure it's the first negative review I've seen of the record. But a well written review none the less.

    Xentrix, yes I haven't seen much in the way of negative reviews other than mine. I wish I felt differently about the album but at least everyone knows I'll never be less than honest when you read something I wrote. I appreciate your feedback.

    Anyone here ever get the version with the DVD? I'm curious what's on it!

    Didn't know it existed. I'll have to look for it.

    I already have Carpe Noctum, but that's something different :)

    Been listening to Win Hands Down the past few days. Fucking cracker of a record.

    The song that Pearl features on with Bush "Full Head of Steam" is my fave. Just brilliant!
