Sun of Nothing and Ants of the Sky seem to drag on to me, and White Walls is a little too long for its own good. Somehow they're just
out of reach of getting to that Opeth level of genius in melding together heavy -> soft parts -> build up -> heavy again. I think the guitar noodling goes on a little too much at times, and would prefer a more cohesive feel.
I still love BTBAM, and listen to Colors all the time. Amazing album. The formula can be improved though, and I'm hoping they figure out how to do it.
