track listing is in here too!

ADD should have a review done by tomorrow:eyes:

The clouds and the "lighting" effects make me think it is done by Derek Riggs but I may be wrong.

I'm too inept to make it say Source: Blabbermouth:hecho: Maybe one of the cool mods will help me and tell me how to do it in the future:D

Wow........ the ants are supposed to represent humans obviously, it's a metaphor :hecho: Hence the city/freeway background, we are like ants scurrying about in a systematic chaos, blah blah blah, etc......

Okay, I get the metaphor, but it's sort of a gay one. The ants are poorly drawn.

They were two separate ideas. The metaphor is gay because it's one of those pretentious "Aren't we all just..." metaphors, and the ants also happen to be poorly drawn.

Still gonna be a sweet album though :allan:

And I like it. That's about all I can say until I absorb it more. On first listen it rules though.
