2 stars Experimenting with their new vocalist leads to an even greater shift in song structure and style than with "Season's End", which doesn't pay-off in the long run. "Holidays in Eden" is a mixed-bag of catchy, artistic songs like "Splintering Heart" and a few huh moments like with "The Party" and "This Town", which are popish without retaining the band's usual artistic flair. The album as a whole, actually, is much less dynamic than its predecessor, and lacks a lot of its intensity.

Great for serious fans, but not a good example of the band's strengths considering their previous, and future output.

Songwriting: 2 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 2 Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
