    Each song is well written and impeccably arranged but the album often bounces along from one style to another, sounding as though each song is paying tribute to various influences instead of combining them all to create a distinct sound of its own.

    The disc’s more subtle moments are also the sweeter ones, with just enough whimsy to honor the brand and earn this new crop of self-styled mutants their name.

    You may find yourself cringing along to these missteps, but the album also a pretty fair split between between good and bad.

    Where once they were on the cusp of the avant, breaking down walls through experimentation and sonic manipulation, with Fool Metal Jack, rather than come off as updated or even retro-fitted, they simply sound dated.
