I Kinda Wish Eluveitie Hadn't Made An Acoustic Album

Because on the first listen, it's not really that good. Part of the problem might be the concept: if you have a folk metal act and you take away the metal, you're left with...folk. Folk is fine and all, but the biggest portion of this band's appeal to me was how they rocked, and on this album the rock is gone. I'm already a little disappointed in Slania-precursor Spirit, and now hearing Evocation I... and its slightly toothless potterings, I'm starting to wonder if Eluveitie was just a one-album flash in the pan.
