3 stars A glorious example of just how fruitful the cross-fertilisation of progressive metal and metalcore can be, Between the Buried and Me's Colors weds clean vocals and death metal growls, furious breakdowns and sweeping progressive metal workouts, and sprays the resulting fusion over broad canvasses (including the incredible 14 minute album closer White Walls) to yield a metalcore album that most prog metal fans can find something to love about.

Vocalist-keyboardist Tommy Giles Rogers is perhaps the star player in my estimation, but all the band members turn in great performances and the end result is a cutting-edge metalcore masterpiece that stands as a shocking rebuke to anyone who'd write off metalcore as shallow or formulaic. It isn't quite my thing, mostly because metalcore as a whole isn't and it is still recognisably enough part of that particular style that if you find metalcore's conventions especially grating then the album may not reward repeated listens. But it's worth at least giving a chance to, because you may find its prog stylings win you over anyway.ic.
