If this sounds overtly negative, I can only say it is because of enormous expectations coming in. I still very much enjoy this album, it just doesn't have the sweeping highs of Mountain Sound and Dirty Paws and melancholy lows of Love, Love, Love or Your Bones. I would say that Humans, Crystals, and I of the Storm are the standouts.
In summary, if you like OMAM, you will like this album. It has cleaner, if less rich, sound. It is definitely less upbeat and varied instrumentally as its predecessor, but that isn't inherently a bad thing. What it does, it does very, very well. On its own merits, it definitely is praiseworthy. I guess it is just a victim of monumental expectations.
According to Wikipedia/EN, the singles from this album are: Crystals, I of the Storm, Empire, and Hunger. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beneath_the_Skin_(Of_Monsters_and_Men_album))
I bought the standard release album, so I can't comment on the additional 4 tracks on the "Deluxe" release version.
It's difficult, if not impossible, for so many artists to produce original-sounding rock that isn't annoying. Of Monsters And Men have managed to do that. No single track on here is as good as "Mountain Sound," but it was still richly rewarding.
