3 stars This is a concept album about the future of the world and how human deal with technology. It's not the first time the band deal with that with their ironic view. We can hear throughout the album a robotic voice to link every songs together and keep the concept intact. But with the music now... After the "Long Division" album, which i stop listening realizing that he was not very progressive, the band was supposed to have done their most progressive album. From the start of the album, i can only say that i recognize the same 80's influence with so much vocals, (which are very good), that the music seems to support the vocals. The song structures are simple, there is many catchy hooks and some more unusual twists. We have to wait for the song "the Best & The Brightest to hear some heavier parts with some nice break, some spacey keyboards. "Circuit Court" is a weak track, where nothing seems to work together. "Life at any Cost" is starting to be interesting with the nice break that brings some faster tempo, heavy and darker parts with the first and probably the last memorable guitar solo. "What it means to be Human" is another complex song that show some nice work with the vocals and nice musicianship. "We Regret to Inform You" is another nice track with a long instrumental section and some nice bass playing. The last song is the return to some more simple structure type of song, some jazzy parts. In conclusion, the cd improve halfway through, but i can't say i share the same enthusiasm as many reviewers here, so this is not a masterpiece, but only the best 3rdegree album.
