5 stars Wow, this one definitely amazed me! BTBAM's newest release shows that this band is growing and branching out more and more towards other styles of music. This one should appeal to an even larger crowd than their previous releas "Colors." While not as heavy as their previous released, don't expect that they've completely let up from their hardcore style because this is definitely not the case. They just have less moments of the sheer intensity.

The first number isn't really heavy as it has clean singing and great intrumetal parts. Despite being just over three minutes, it's still very good! The next piece however is even better and has some killer solos and it is a lot heavier. "Disease, Injury, and Madness" is one that many will like due to the quieter middle section that is very atmospheric and progressive. There's even some nice acoustic guitar thrown in it too. It's one of my favorite's on the album due to it's power and its varying styles. "Fossil Genera" has the most unique intro starting with some quirky piano, leading into the heavy guitars. The vocals are mosyl clean and is another piece that people may like outside this genre. "Desert Of Song" is almost entirely absent of the heavy parts just like the first piece is, and makes for a great acoustic song! The grand finale of the album "Swim to the Moon" is just what you'd expect, with BTBAM throwing in everything into this piece! It makes for a great epic, and is also very technical. It's also my other favorite piece on the album, and it ranges from different moods while still being brutal.

I highly reccomend this album to fans of this genre and even encourage people from the outside to give it a try!
