Significant difference between listening to youtube and this release...even when only evaluating if you like the music. My first listen was "sounds good, but the music...not so sure about"...so I understand your initial impression. For me, this was another "grows on you" album. My favorite tracks: The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead, The Smartest Monkeys, The Disappointed, War Dance, and Books are Burning.
Too each their own, but don't bail too quick :-)
