Why would I be trolling? I really think it's their worst album. Or, rather, their worst release.

 

I agree. Although reapers and the handler is some of their finest work, the rest is far too cheese.

lol those Reapers, JFK artworks

 

It's more consistent than The 2nd Law.

 

Indeed. It works better as a whole. But the overall quality of songs is quite a bit worse for me.

The Handler and Reapers are great.

Dead Inside, Aftermath and The Globalist are decent.

Psycho is okay.

Mercy, Revolt, Defector are bad.

Drones is dafuq?

Disagree with that, but I can see where you're coming from. For me, the second half of The 2nd Law is almost unlistenable with maybe three songs I can tolerate. I can listen through all of Drones without wanting chop my ears off.

Nah. I'd take everything in Drones bar Aftermath over everything in The 2nd Law. And that's not even to say I rate this album particularly highly! I just really hate The 2nd Law.

 

And as a coherent whole, as you say, Drones is easily better.

Ditto but I'd take Aftermath and leave Revolt

There aren't really any songs from T2L that I can imagine wanting to revisit in a few years down the line, there are a few for Drones though.

I wonder if we'll get another live album for the tour.

 

Hopefully. And not filled with shit songs like Olympic Stadium.

seems a bit soon after the last one? but maybe

 

To be fair, I think they wanted to do one for TR tour, so it wouldn't be past them to do one for two albums in a row.

 

and yes @ tdrunner, we've heard enough hits on the live albums at this point

There's been one for every album apart from Showbiz and TR (and even that was 'cause something fucked up, iirc), so it's not unlikely. Only thing that might stop them would be the fact that the Live At Rome DVD flopped commercially.

You'd take Revolt and Mercy over, say, Animals and Isolated System?

 

Actually surprising.

Drones is a great album for me, especially after T2L.

 

I can actually listen to the album in order from start to finish without wanting to skip anything. First time since BH&R.

 

Reapers and The Handler are incredible. I enjoy Revolt, Dead Inside and Mercy. Defector, Psycho and The Globalist are also great. Aftermath and Drones are the only real ones I could live without, but even so, they're good pieces of music and have grown on me a lot.

 

Fabri says it's the worst album. That means nothing. For me it's their best and most focused work since BH&R (or maybe even Abso).

 

Also, welcome back Fabri. ;)
