4 stars I can absolutely understand why some people don't like this band. They can be abrasive, their music takes some work to listen to, and the vocals can often sound like a deranged version of "Alvin and The Chipmunks". But if you can get past all that and give this disk a try, underneath you will find a wonderful piece of agressive prog.

To me, new drummer Thomas Pridgen makes a difference on this album. His tight, complex drumming drives the album constantly and consistently throughout. And since most of the songs blend together, it becomes difficult at times to know where one begins and the next ends, making this album appear to be a single epic piece.

I love using this album for an after work attidude adjustment. The only problem I find is that the high pitch vocals are often difficult to understand.

4.5 stars to me.
