Personally I'm impressed with the new Soilwork, but it's a bit of a mammoth and may take awhile to fully absorb/digest and make my final opinion.
As of right now, I would say EASILY best album since APP. It will take more listens to go any farther than that. APP has always been my favorite.
10.01 Sonata Arctica
11.03 King Diamond
01.22 70000 Tons of Metal
01.27 Dark Tranquillity
