2 stars I'm surprised this is the top rated Prog Metal Album on PA. The music here isn't bad, but it's average PM at best. There is this one instrumental track (Loser) with some Celtic sounds to it which is kind of interesting, but that is honestly the highlight. The lyrics here are atrocious. Now, some bad lyrics are hilarious and epic, but these are just painful and forced, trying to have some merit. The track with James Labrie (out of all the people to have as a guest star) is especially unlistenable; the vocals not even conveying the meaning of the bad lyrics about "School". Seemingly, a highly overrated release, and I'm not sure what so many like about it. I'd bet if this band focused on the instrumental part of their music and wrote the lyrics to accentuate the music, not the other way around (or make an instrumental album :D) then they could make some great music.
