5 stars If this album has one thing it's range. Range in intensity with loud, in your face music, and quiet swoony songs abound as well. The instrumentation is fantastic with almost always something playing that isn't a traditional rock instrument. The additional instruments aren't there for show either, they add a lot of depth to the recording. The singing on the album is spectacular with some of the best vocal harmonies I can recall, and the lead singers voice ranging from soft to abrasive throughout the album. I actually tried very hard to find anything wrong with this recording but found nothing that irritated me or caught my attention. It can,however be on the quiet side sometimes, so if you prefer louder musics, while it's definitely here, it's not as abundant as the quiet. All in all this album clocks in at over an hour and fifteen minutes and none of it is filler, which is hard to say of other 70+ minute albums. I would recommend this album to anyone but especially fans of newer prog like the mars volta or coheed and cambria (the singing is not the same as either band). If this is just act 2 of 6. I can't wait for the next 4. This band definitely has a bright future ahead!
