Good post. I too do appreciate that he is trying new things but this one just missed the mark completely imo. I am turned off my songs where he is talking himself up like he's a GOD (in I am a God) and other tracks as well. Other than Black Skinhead I wasn't feeling this album at all.
That being said, I still look forward to his music.
