Anyway, the album is pretty bad. Way too much "we've hung out with Devin Townsend and Dream Theater" bullshit. If Colors was dizzying technical hardcore punctuated with moments of sheer emotional power and the occasional foray into "circus music," the new one is basically just circus music as played by Between the Buried and Me. Massively disappointing, but they'll never be the band they were on Alaska and Colors again.
I'm 3 songs in right now. It's not just circus music but there's definitely more than usual.
