2 stars i had very high hopes for this album, i thought the blend of jazz (which i heard NO jazz sounding material on this album) metal, and tempo changes would be really exciting and interesting.

I'm generally a fan of modern heavy metal (not necesarily prog metal either), but i really didn't like this album at all. Its so loud and ridiculous, there isn't anything (or any time) to enjoy a single song on the album. Only a few songs really have any recognizable melody above the ridiculous distortion and horrid vocals (and its a wonder the vocalist is even still able to speak after recording this album).

Setting Fire to Sleeping Giants, however, is a good song that balances a quick, steady sound with a frantic and melodic chorus rather effectively.

Every other song is a mesh of tempo changes that don't work, horrid vocals (and i listen to a lot of growly voiced metal bands), and uninspired tracks that do nothing for the listener but annoy
