My thoughts exactly. If you got the bonus edition with the remixed songs, it makes it even cheesier. A few songs remind me of the FFDP of before, but overall, it's just tough to swallow. "The Pride" is the ultimate in cheesy. It's like they threw in a bunch of words and "poof", out came this song. Musically it's decent, but not what I'm looking for in a FFDP song.Lyrically I think this album is cheesy and that is a very low point. Also music wise in parts this album is extremely average, their first 2 albums were way better.
