I think Foreigner and Given to the Grave are the best tracks on the album. The melodies. God the melodies...

I also like how the whole thing isn't a giant slab of super depressive funeral doom. A lot of the melodies actually sound uplifting. Brett Campbell sounds like he's about to fall on his knees and start weeping, but the album sounds like death shouldn't necessarily coincide with depression, but rather, be embraced with open arms and met head on.
