4 stars I think the sum of the other reviews is a fair overview of this is shorter and less complex than other albums, the singing is cleaner (which I prefer) and it is a progression from their earlier albums, whilst retaining many of their signature sounds....One of highlights of their sound is the phenomenal drumming...there isn't quite as much spark on this album (for my taste)... the production is awful, i hope they remix/remaster and re-release this at some point...(i think i could do better with my home studio) of the guitar solos jars (out of time)...but apart from the few negatives this is a very enjoyable album with some great highlights, moments of beauty, lush soundscapes and great arrangements....I think the final track reminds be most of their earlier sound and is the drumming highlight of album.... I have rated this as 4 stars...on the basis that I think it would be great addition to anyones collection....but it is not quite a masterpiece (for me).....However, if I was rating this on how much I enjoy this album it would be 5 stars.
