This is the only complaint that people can come up with:
It's too Slow.
That is complete bullshit, these people were expecting "Nostradamus: Featuring Painkiller". That's the stupidest mistake anyone could ever make. If you actually listen to the bands catelogie, I'm gonna say over HALF of it is slower mellow tunes believe it or not. So it's extremely hypocritcal to say this is too slow when that much of there previous work is slow too. It's ridiculous.
You ALL knew this was not going to be a fast Cd, you ALL knew it was going to be totally different from anything else, but your still shocked to find out that it's totally different from anything else. Take it for what it is and stop comparing it to Painkiller. Just enjoy the music, listen to it! Don't sit there thinking "...... this is slow.... I wanna listen to Painkiller!". That's stupid. Amazing album, but this is not that.
Just take the album for what it is, and stop comparing it to other songs. THAT is why some people hate it. They just want Excited, Freehwheel Burning and Painkiller again.
