Just bought the album today. It is definitely in my top 3 favorite albums of 2009.
I too thought that Colors would be impossible to meet, but I now believe that BTBAM are incapable of writing anything but masterpieces.
I know its unintentional but this albums really syncs up with Dream Theater's Black Clouds And Silver Linings...4 epics, 2 possible singles.
My favorite track is Swim To The Moon. It's 17 minutes of pure perfection. Then again, every track is phenomenal.
10/10 for sure!
