✦✦✧✧ I was going to come right out and heap praise on Bruce’s vocals, but honestly everyone sounds great here. Not a single member of the band are phoning it in. That said, 80 minutes is a big investment in an album that doesn’t offer many iconic moments or hooks. Also, is it a concept album about board games? It is, right? Anyway, this is the best thing they’ve in over a decade (shout out to The Final Frontier, winner of the First Annual Arsies)!
