5 stars After listening to Between the Buried and Me's newest CD, i'm having a hard time deciding if this is their masterpiece, or The Great Misdirect. A very intense concept indeed, followed by some very brutal music to go with it. Some may complain that it is too heavy all the time, but I feel that it is just right to go with the mood an concept of the album. All the breakdowns to me are in the right places, as well as the clean vocals and the heavy vocals. With the right ears, you will find that this album is extremely progressive and there are even parts where the music lets down from being brutal and will go into symphonic mode. There's also the bar fight music at the end of Ant's of the Sky" That everybody loves. I think that "Son of Nothing" is the strongest piece on the track ranging from all sorts of moods, showcasing that this band is extremely talented. "Decade of Statues" is also very well done and should be heard by anyone that likes to headbang and go nuts.

I know that this kind of music will not appeal to everyone on this site, but if you are a fan of technical or brutal music, than this one is a must. It has the best of both worlds, being both prgressive and heavy.
