Then again, I've been listening to The Harvest Floor quite regularly since it was released (/unleashed) 5 years ago, so it did have a bit of a head start for me. Also, there's no 'Regret & the Grave' on Monolith... :)
Either way, if you ever get the chance to see Cattle Decapitation live (if you haven't already), be sure not to miss them.
Yeah I guess becoming a recent fan of Cattle Decapitation gives me kind of a skewed perspective on albums as I did not have to listen to them progress in the way the band is now. To me Monolith of Humanity just evolved the Harvest Floor sound too well (imo) and I just like it that much better.
I will definitely go seem them live if the tour lands around here. The only problem (tourwise) right now is that they are putting most of their resources into writing atm. So they probably wont do a full fledged tour until that is over. They are doing a small batch around the CA area, but I do not live anywhere near there.

I personally love the haunting clean parts. I definitely do understand what you are saying. Though it can break up the pacing a bit. I feel those moments really get across the point of the whole band. I always get the feeling of being criticized for being a human, and that I actually should try to to change the culture we live in. Which is indeed very haunting for me, and strangely pulls me into the music more.
