The resident reactionary recalcitrant
FII has a really nice and unique atmosphere, to me it probably comes from the combination of the cover art and great production. Derek's influence is not to be underestimated either.
Fans always complain about how it was "butchered by the studio" and that probably gives it the bad reputation, but I disagree - yeah, having Raise the Knife there would have been nice, but even as is, it is a strong album, very melodic, it has two of their greatest ballads in Hollow Years and Anna Lee and Trial of Tears is an underrated gem (and IMHO the best of their 10+ tracks pre-SFAM, bar Voices).
It is also my go-to DT album to recommend to people who are not used to metal.
People always make it seem like You Not Me sounded like Christina Aguillera or something.
