5 stars Between The Buried And Me (or often refered to as BTBAM by 'hardcore' fans of the band) are an American metal band that fuse a hardcore/deathcore sound with some very excellent progressive metal sounds, now on this album not only can you hear those sounds but quite a lot of other influences come in as well such as jazz, blues, country rock, a little bit of paino rock i can hear in there as well, now while i would say the whole deathcore thing really isnt my cup of tea, this works, it really does.

The musicmanship is quality and overall the composition is incredible, it starts off with the very Beatlesqe FOAM BORN (A) THE BACKTRACK before being blown away with the next one (B) THE DECADE OF STATUES, the transaction from track 1 to track 2 is fantastic and really doesnt seem forced which is what most bands tend to do, the whole album flows so naturally, and you can tell that this band really know what they want to do and they go ahead and do it, and do it right.

Standout tracks for me was SUN OF NOTHING with the excelent vocoder used just over the halfway mark of the song and of course the beautiful and obvous Dream Theater influenced bass solo VIRIDIAN, this track just blew me away with the amount of versatility and talent on display;

Foam Born (a) The Backtrack - 8/10 (b) The Decade of Statue - 10/10 Informal Gluttony - 8/10 Sun of Nothing - 10/10 Ants of the Sky - 9/10 Prequel to the Sequel - 10/10 Viridian - 10/10 White Walls - 10/10

My Conclusion? This album has 'must buy' written all over it, believe the hype this album is a masterpiece.
