Guest review by

After a run of three albums that saw Killswitch Engage become one of the biggest names in modern metal, this album came along and saw the wheels fall off the bus for the band. While not a bad album, it saw the band unable to carry over the momentum and subsequently saw the end of the Jones era of the band. Killswitch Engage is an album I reach for on rare occasions, not because it is bad per se, but because the band had (and subsequently have) done better things, leaving this album to find its spot near the back tucked away behind other albums.

Somehow I just adore some songs on this album. Probably my favorite album by them. Save Me, Starting Over, A Light In A Darkened World, and In A Dead World. These songs make the album for me, riffs, vocal melody, chorus and bridge, just perfect to me.

Yeah, I know this album has received a lot of negative criticism but I like it enough to give it a rating of 8. Some of the songs sound a bit repetitive but overall there are some good songs here.
