5 stars There is no way to give out less than 5 stars here. This is the latest album from a musician who has always worn his heart and influences on his sleeve, but the only band you can be reminded of is Pain of Salvation. This album has it all; balls-out prog metal like "Full Throttle Tribe", a fun vocal-focused single in "Reasons" which stays in your head for days, and the emotional heavyweights you can always expect from Daniel Gildenlow. We get some very sexual lyrics in "Tongue of God" and during the super cool "Meaningless" which is the song I'd recommend you check out first. My favourite is opener "On A Tuesday", the spoken and sung verses caught me off guard at first before I was introduced to the big chorus. The album was inspired partly by Daniel's battle with flesh eating bacteria, feeling helpless in a hospital bed, and his wife watching him suffer and the impact it had on her. Like much of his music, this is a very personal album from an incredible musician that begs to be heard at least once no matter what you like. This album reminds me of Remedy Lane more than their others albums, but like each new Pain of Salvation album it's a completely new beast, and in my opinion their best album yet.
