Surprised by the response
I'm surprised by the number of reviewers who were disappointed by this episode, I think the series is continuing to evolve nicely.
The thing I like most about this installment, is that compared to the early episodes, it realies less on strait out shocking and gross imagery. There's more subtlety, and my opinion, it creates a better uncomfortable surreal atmosphere that David's work is known for. The art and animation is better, and it's just better film making overall.
The choice to change the music is a valid one, the slight change in mood is refreshing. It has a much more cinematic quality. I don't understand the reasons for people getting upset about these changes, how it's not the same music or the same scream SFX or whatever. It seems like you're trying to different things, and I respect the fact that you're not just reducing your work down to shock value and catchphrases, just to appease a select group of your fanbase.
