LOL the production ain't sloppy at all. Its very detailed and original. I still think its incredible. I've read people saying that its "all about mood" but all the songs have been stuck in my head over the last few months. They're well written songs, not just about mood or atmosphere, although thats obviously a compelling part of the album.
Fine if you don't like it, but I also think its an album that gets better each time you listen. I think on my first listen I would have rated it average.
