Yes, the album has its flaws (the last third of Aftermath and Mercy) but it has a cohesive artistic proposition that makes it highly enjoyable.

One man's 'cohesive artistic proposition' is another man's tacky clichéd thought vomit.

Srsly, Drones is about as intelligent or thought-provoking as the contents of a 12-year-old's Live Journal.

Thankfully, it's got some musical intrigue to bring to the table.

Totally. There's nothing interesting about what the album is trying to say. But musically and thematically it has a somewhat cohesive universe, and I like that.

There's some aspects regarding the narrative that have made me theorize a bit.

But the last third of Aftermath is the best part.

Holds up well. First half is still good. Second half is still shit.

Was really hoping for some B sides to crop up

Maybe no B sides is a good thing, they could've ended up just being remixes or Prague quality They could've left Revolt and Aftermath off the album and made them the b-sides.

Also, if I was in their shoes, I would have added another heavy track between Psycho and Mercy, carrying on with theme of the first one. Maybe the whole album could have taken benefits from it.

Even just studio versions of Sign O' The Times and Lies would be nice tbh. I remember Dom told a fan they'd record the former next time they were in the studio back in 2013 or something but I guess they forgot.

Aftermath is probably my least favorite song on the album, but that doesn't mean to say i hate it. Apparently I read it was written for Robert John "Mutt" Lange, a kinda homage. With that in mind I respected it more. I don't get the hate for 'Revolt' though, I really like this track. It has a B-side feel, reminded me a little of 'Crying Shame' or 'Easily' a little.

But sadly both Crying Shame and Easily don't have rocket launchers in their videos. Everything is better with rocket launchers. Thinking about it, they don't even have a video to begin with.

If it has a b-side feel to it, wouldn't it be fair to question why it's on the album?

Revolt reminds me of the pre-Showbiz era.
