4 stars This review must be separeted into two parts: my personal feelings and the true facts... 1st. The record is a highly anticipated piece, and certainly is a good one, with a lot of heavy riffs, nice singing and good craft in all the songs, really. BUT... 2nd. Is (of course) a little less adventurous than IN ABSENTIA, is an obvious evolution, but not a surprising one, we must admit that the mastermind of WILSON is almost perfect and has it's limits, and he figure that out by inviting 2 nice important figures in music. Anyway. The music is very kind, but has "things" from another established bands that made my personal point of view very hard. In the end, is a very good record, a very solid one, but not the first one to hear if your trying to learn something from this band... to be honest Wilson and company spent almost 3 years trying to reach out different places other than PT, and part of that research is shown in here. Let's be a little bit open and enjoy the record "as is". As usual, the "lost" songs from the album are quite more representative of the true spirit of the sessions. Try to locate the LAZARUS promo, what a piece!!!! peace
