I think the first song is incredible, and then a little while later I'm listening to "Big Burned Hand" which straight up sounds like Sam Beam found a funky 80's pop hit he loved and dubbed his vocals over it.
The last 4 minutes of "Your Fake Name Is Good Enough For Me" make me want to pull my eyeballs out of my head. Seriously the most annoying thing Sam Beam has ever done. Overall I think the album is decent. About half really great tracks and half WTF tracks. Slight step down from The Shepherd's Dog, imo.
