I feel the same about Red Giant, I just don't get it. It's just.... there.

I feel that way about the whole album. A huge step back from all that came before.

To me, many tracks on Affinity feel like they're just there. That's why it's hard for me to love the entire album.

I picked the following ones:

Cockroach King
Eternal Rain
As Death Embraces
Atlas Stone
Earthrise
Insomnia

It's the build up.   The first few times I heard it, it just seemed like it was meandering.    But then it just hit me as this 5 minute slow build up to that HUGE climactic ending.     It's like making love at a very slow pace and then suddenly having the climax be so earth shattering that it sends you into another dimension.....like the kind where you forget where you are.
