5 stars I have to say IMHO that this album equals previous greats by Oman and bunch. Though I've only been through this disk twice so far, there are moment remeniscent of Deloused... Frances the Mute and even At the Drive In material. i'm not going to do an in depth revview until i feel that i really have sunk my teeth into the album itself and it might be a little quick to judge but i do say that this could possibly be their best, if only just second place behind the irreplacable Delouse in the Comatorium. The song structure is incredible the new drummer doesn't miss a beat and drums frantically then slows it down into a jazz rythym that will give you chills. Though i haven't really embraced it fully yet. I can already feel its power and understand why its garnering such amazing critical attention.

5 Stars.
