You know when you taste something you have never had before and you kind of like it? Communication Lost was like that for me. I had never tasted Wolverine before. But what does it taste like? Melodic progressive metal goodness.

It begins in an eerie mood with "Downfall", which is a premonition of what is to come, in the musical form of brooding emptiness. The album appeals to the emotions. There is also an underpinning feeling of things ending and of change. That seems to be a recurring theme stretching out to catch most songs.

Yes, I like this album.
Not sure if I prefer it to the previous "Still" album though. Time will tell.

One of the best progressive metal albums of 2011, which says a lot as 2011 was a great year for progressive metal.
Every song has some vocal lines or melodies that are infectiously catchy, which is essential to this kind of music. I can't even specify what songs are greater than others.
Oh, and I also liked the drum solo in the title track.

It grew quite well on me, and it's something I would call "a personal album" since I became quite attached to it.

Vocals are reminiscent of Lars' from Before the Dawn...nostalgia certain adds a few points Excellent album so far, even the mostly acoustic tracks are entrancing....
