I assume it's because they threw the drum track back in there and it wasn't recorded as well as the others (I know nothing about editing). Is this the kind of stuff that you say is wrong with Kyouiku?
Its the raw sound of kyouiku that is said to be "wrong" with it. Its the voice and the music are more mashed together so it sounds less professional if you will. I think this is a testament to their skill that they can have a raw sounding album be this great.

Kyouiku in it's lovely raw state is better than what most high-budget major artists release throughout their entire careers.

He actually doesn't look that bad there, except for the weird horns.

Hirama's best PV is the half-transvestite one. But I can't find it on youtube anymore!! *cries*

You know, I'm kind of confused that there's so much mutual distaste for this album.

It was actually my favorite of all of theirs. I thought the kind of grungy-rock really suited the band at that period. It really grew on me the second I heard it. I kind of liked the fuzz and the feedback and static--hell, I would even go far enough as to say it was musical!

I feel like the chemistry of the band during the recording of this album was definitely perfect. I guess you could argue that the later albums were better put together, but there's something about this album that stands out that none of the other albums could try to touch.

My 2¢.

Whoooaaa you definitely have the wrong idea. There is absolutely no "mutual distaste" for this album.
