From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Actually 4.5 stars. I bought this album because of its high ratings on this site. After my first listen I had a hard time getting past the "wall of noise" where the music seems to ebb and flow against a constant growling background. A few more spins revealed the extraordinary depth and quality within each of the songs. It keeps getting better the more I listen to it. The layered vocals, solid grooves, superb melodies, and consistent production quality make this a truly great album.

Olives - 4/5 - Interesting opening for the album. I like it. Mountain - 3/5 - One of the heavier songs on the album. Good vocals. Earth Day - 4/5 - Great chorus mixed in with NineInchNails/MarilynManson-like music. Deap Peace - 4/5 - 1st half isn't particularly noteworthy but really picks up halfway through with waltz-like guitar work. Canada - 5/5 - My favorite song on the album. An incredible groove with majestic vocals. Down and Under - 5/5 - An instrumental with a nice gradual buildup. The Fluke - 3/5 - One of the more aggressive songs. Definitely has its moments. Nobody's Here - 4/5 - Slower song with a consistent, driving melody. Tiny Tears - 5/5 - Excellent progressive ballad. I especially like the buildup at the end. Stagnant - 3/5 - Not bad, but a bit too "poppy" for my taste.

Highly recommended!
