And plus, I think it's sold out too.

I really like this album a lot. They do a great job of recreating the old AIC sound and still giving it a newer feel when Duval sings more like him than Layne. When i listen to this I picture Layne singing and not Duval which probably is because i'm more used to Staley's voice and Duval does do a good job of re-creating Layne's vocal style though not as good. I liked ALIV when I first heard it and immediately thought "Hell yeah they're back!" I didn't like CMB as much on the first listen but after a few times I really dug that one as well.

Other ones that are really good are Last Of My Kind, Your Decision, Acid Bubble and Private Hell which maybe my favorite on the album. Does anyone else think that the voice that says "I Feel Cold" in Private Hell kinda sounds like the ghost of Layne? It's kinda creepy.

Now they just need to get a tour date in Buffalo or Rochester so I can go see them.

Alright, I listened, and I wasn't disappointed. There is definitely cool shit on here - "All Secrets Known" might be one of the best songs they've done, in fact. But people really need to stop hailing it as this amazing album because I think more than anything they're just excited that an AIC disc without Layne doesn't suck, and that the new guy actually sounds like Layne at times. Good album, but not up to the hype.

I don't think it was hyped that much, maybe you thought too much of "it doesn't suck, it's pretty good".
From first listen it was on par with what I was expecting, and it's only gotten better the more I listen to it imo.
I'll take the time to post a legit review at some point.

I'm kinda going by the fact that from five reviews it has a 95% on Metal-Archives, the highest rating of any of their albums. Uhhhh, no. Better than the self-titled, but not better than any of the others I don't think.
