It's definitely not a bad album and has occasional moments of awe, but for me it is really forgettable. After listening to it a couple of times, I have zero desire to revisit it. Ok, maybe I'd spin "Edge" from time to time - when they are not trying to throw a whole bag of ideas into the songs and go simple - it actually works surprisingly well.
I think Mike really nailed the album main issue - "a little oppressively 'samey' in texture, if not in detail" - but this is really a major flaw.
