Just listened to about 3/4 of the album on their myspace. Little to no improvement over their last album IMO, hot topic-core all the way. I don't have an issue with clean vocals when they are done well. It's just that it sounds so forced and cheesy on this record. I was rolling my eyes about every 30 seconds. I really like Behind Silence and Solitude
and This Darkened Heart
but beyond that, I'll pass.
Also, Phil's sunglasses in every press photo on their myspace looks pretty goofy. Whata tough guy.
