REVIEW: Morbid Angel "Illud Divinum Insanus"

Opinions on Illud Divinum Insanus have gone from applauded to appalling. Mostly appalling. Check out the 35 (and growing) reviews on Amazon. Thus quoteth some Amazon reviewers: "a Spinal Tap level embarrassment", "Inexcusable", "An eight year wait for an absolute train wreck", "How the mighty have fallen!", and (my favorite) "It's not completly [sic] terrible... just mostly". Just mostly? Yes. I personally gave Illud Divinum Insanus a 5/10 in the newest issue of dB (#81, click here) for reasons you can read in the magazine. But! I have to hand it to Cover Killer. This guy's so fucking passionate he rants and raves for 9 minutes about Morbid Angel's newest poo-poo platter and it's positively hilarious. He states, in histrionic tones, listening to Illud Divinum Insanus on repeat is the definition of Hell. Ouch!

What do you think of the new Morbid Angel? Feel free to use dB's review section rating system. 1 for terrible. 10 for terrific.
