Exactly This. And then in his blog he writes twice TO PLAY THE CD LOUD... for f*** sake, who wouldn't play it loud the first 5 times at all??? Any new CD gets played loud, you don't need an advice to do that! Also because with headphones often you realize there are little sounds you never heared before even after 10 dozen times listening the same song, and that is already one good reason to play it loud on stereo! I don't mean to be offensive toward Evan, just some things gets kinda on my nerves lol. @Derek: to accept the album as a voyage is what the band tries to do, and the review dismantles it... if there is someone who was sceptical about interludes (not me) and was starting maybe to change ideas, to read this gets backwards again. I prefer people to be as the ones who makes interviews, saying "i can't wait to hear it again!" to understand it better, and not to say "i forgot this and that and those were funny and the interludes felt moody and lame" after 2 listens. See what i mean? And by the way, this album will be a delight for the senses. I am sure of that.
