3 stars Imagine if Yes names their new album as "Close To The Edge 2" or "Fragile 2", an insanely bold decision that probably wouldn't pay well. Between The Buried And Me's fourth album was their breakthrough album, and till today it's considered one of their best works, so a sequel to that record only meant that it was going to be a disappointment or it was called like such because they thought it was one of their best records. Turns out it was the latter!

I don't think this is the best album they have made, I still think Parallax II is better, and Colors is better just because it introduced their signature sound. But this is still one of their best works, I would put it at #3. The album, just like most Between The Buried And Me records, has a great sense of continuity all along the album, mostly because it's a concept album.

This record should be listened from start to finish, but some standouts would be Revolution In Limbo, Fix The Error, Bad Habits and the closer Human Is Hell.

4.5 stars, rounded up.
