Bleh. Either John is losing his touch (I hope not!) or they are pushing him into certain directions... I'm thinking it is the latter because from what I've seen previously, and in his own line the guy is a creative genius. It makes me sad. I'm sure it will grow on me when I see it in motion or the detail shots. But I wasn't overly impressed with the last HC collection either. Ugh.
Anyway... it isn't bad...just not as good as previous collections.
