3 stars My first impression of this album had me pretty excited. Leprous manage to create a unique enough sound to stand out amongst the plethora of metalcore-ish prog bands out there. It should be pointed out that the first times I did listen to this album is was more as a background listen (while doing some gaming) rather than giving it my full attention. Then I gave it my full attention and I immediately had problems with it. Namely, it's length. Nearly every song here is about 2-3minutes longer than it needs to be, repeating the chorus just once or twice much. Each song introduces a new enough, likeable sound but fails to go anywhere. Once you've heard the first 3 minutes of a song, you've practically heard all that it has to offer and then it just repeats and repeats.

The entire album itself is also a bit long clocking in at 1h and 11min.. there is a 4 star or potentially 5 star forty minute album in here, but as it is, for me, I can only see giving it 3.
