3 stars When compared with the three peak Benoit David era albums, which I find to be very exciting pieces or music, there's something uncreative about this one. I'm going to pretend this is a blip in the series, and there are better things to come.

Don't get me wrong, the new vocalist Pageau is ninety percent as good as his predecessor, and there are some great and lengthy guitar solos, especially if you're focused on the type of thing (maybe, I'll have to listen more), but I do not think it is up to the same level as One Among the Living or The World is a Game, which, for example, have long persistent stretches of unique and uplifting music.

I guess I'm reluctant to review something unless I really like it, just to say "hey this isn't as good as its predecessors", so I'm rating it a "3" because that's about as low as I'm willing to go with these things, generally unwilling to JUST throw shade.
