You've got your fast thrashier numbers with the synchopated E-F riffing and the traditional ballads, and the overly long songs that are trying to be epic. The consistancy of good songs to filler is about the same as any other album too. It really annoys me when people do this, how they try to back up their unfounded opinion by claiming it sounds "nothing alike" when in fact it really does. (People who liked BNW or DOD but disliked A Matter of Life and Death come to mind)
man... you are wrong on that one.
the guitar work on this album is taken right from glorious burden, which also sounds NOTHING like their previous work. just because it has the "chugga chugga" sound doesnt make it the same as the old stuff.
