 I suppose it's all a matter of opinion anyway, but if you want to know what this album's REALLY like, read the opposite of basically everything said in this review.

 I find it weird that this album is getting such bad reviews. I'm sure opinion is in there somewhere but there seems to be a trend with album reviews that are not always connected to the music itself. I could easily see this album being hyped up and in every music site's top 10. But nonetheless this album deserves more than a single listen, which seems to be this reviewer did (correct me if I'm wrong). I picked up an advanced copy of it about a month ago for $.50 at a used record store without knowing any of Fog's previous work. I don't know if this review is in reaction to the album being different than his earlier albums but I think if you listen to it more than a couple of times you'll get it. And saying that it's in search of a hook is ridiculous. This album is full of them. Probably the best record I've heard all year.
