I've heard the whole album now and it is a bit on the simpler, straight forward side. Songs go in a more verse-chorus-same verse-same chorus style as compared to past albums where they would do something different after the first chorus. It does have a quite a few sweet guitar riffs and a few new, different types of things they haven't tried before though. Also, it's lacking lead guitar solos. Both players are really good at that and they should show it off more. All in all, I enjoy it quite a bit. My favorite songs are Resilience and Wasted Words. The pre-chorus and chorus in WW are sweet!
