4 stars "Incarnate" is an excellent Panic Room album that has some of the most infectious melodic hard rock songs the band have produced. As always Anne-Marie Helder is an incredible asset as her crystalline vocals permeate the album. She has an angelic tone that evokes emotion and passion on every song. The album really grows on you; I heard it on repeat for some hours while renovating my house and it was very inspiring. The melodies are so well executed it actually becomes better with every listen.

Among the highlights are Velocity, Incarnate, Nothing New, All That We Are, Searching and Dust, that is one of the most ethereal and atmospheric tracks from the band. The themes include relationship breakdowns and the temptation to explore monogamous relationships.

The music is not heavy but still includes some great riffs and guitar licks. It is an hour of high quality music, not too heavy for those who like their metal light, and features enough brilliant lead breaks from O'Sullivan to satisfy those into well played lead guitar. The keyboards are handled well too by Edwards so it is a great band effort.

I was delighted with this album and hate to add to my top 10 albums of 2014. A great Panic Room album to add to their growing catalogue.
