The first two songs are easily the worst two IMO. The albums biggest flaw is the mediocrity of the first 3-4 songs... which is a pretty damning flaw, indeed. But, the latter 2/3 of the album are more like what I like from Blaze.
Definitely his worst, though I also thought Promise and Terror was better than The Man Who Would Not Die, so I disagree about the gradual descent bit.
