3 stars I've listened to this maybe 20 times over and Portal Of I probably 50 times. I feel I have enough experience to write my experience with this.

If I had to rate my top songs from them it would be: (in this order)

Forget Not Xenoflux Painters of the Tempest Tapestry of the Abstract

Citadel is a much shorter album than the previous and not as good. I see people on the internet saying Citadel is better than Portal Of I, and I have to disagree. That's not to say it's not good, it's still a 4 to me. "Portal" was just that damn good.

Citadel has only a few stand out parts in my opinion. The last 5 minutes of Painters, and 4:00 and 9:00 of "Devour Me, Colossus".

Portal had the middle of Tapestry, the last half of Xenoflux, and the entirety of Forget Not that was excellent.

I saw someone compliment their choice to make this new album shorter than Portal. Why? Portal was 70 minutes and great the entire time. Why would they want to shorten it?

I guess that's all I have to say.
