Since when is this beautiful hunk of noise pretty much unanimously the favorite? When it came out reception was lukewarm at best, as is I guess the reception for every album. I I'd still rate it 8/10 because the noise tracks are almost always a skip unless I'm trying to torment someone with it. I saw the first PS show at the GA theater and nobody was jamming to the PS songs besides me and a couple other tentative fans who didn't want to rock out to hrd to an album that might not be critically acclaimed. There were no theatrics or anything besides a crazy projection show. They played most of PS besides the noise, a bit of Skeletal, Do You Mutilate?? oM left to general melancholy and complaining about a lack of costumes no Hissing Fauna, etc. They did all the hits in the encore but that wouldn't bring the crowd back from sorrow. By the time they hit the Variety Playhouse they were back to marching Kevin around and costumes and Sunlandic Twins in the playlist and of course they received thunderous applause.
Either way whats with PS is it that much of a grower or is everyone a bunch of bandwagon jumpers?? Why don't critic reviews update for an album being a grower?
