To be honest, after listening to the album snippets I'm not impressed with WTT. With all the hype surrounding the album, I guess I expected some changed-the-game/classic-type sounding album.
To be fair I guess I can't judge the entire album based off 30-seconds snippets of each song, but to say I'm disappointed at what I have heard thus far would be an understatement.
