For those who are familiar with the music of Between The Buried And Me, this new EP presents no major changes in their sound. Their recipe for a musical experience is the same. In their case, however, continuity can be a good thing because they continue to challenge themselves. If you are listening to the band for the first time, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues is a good example of what they are capable of; the experimental, progressive, aggressive and inventive facets of the band are all present in this release.

  This is an EP/mini-album, whatever you wanna call it. Part 2 will be a full lenght.

Rating: 7 Well, just listened to it. I was not expecting much based on the preview I heard a few weeks back, but I was pleasantly surprised. Specular Reflection and Lunar Wilderness are both very good tracks, with some really good clean parts thrown in. Augment of Rebirth is completely forgettable though. I will still stand by my assertion that they should tone down the harsh vocals, as Rogers is a below average harsh vocalist.

I disagree. I feel Augment of Rebirth to be the best track on the EP! And Rogers didn't shine on the clean parts as he did before...

BTBAM amazed me again with this release, I happened to love the three songs.
I really dig all the "bizarre" interludes between the chaotic death-hardcore riffing, and this album doesn't dissapoint.

I can't say this is the best band ever, I understand everyone that just can't listen to it.
But, hell, I'm personally obsessed with this band.

Rating: 8 Really diverse stuff. Although I found Augment Of Rebirth to be forgettable. Specular Reflection is the best track on this. Looking forward to the new full-length.

  Opening to the album is very thrilling indeed

  I am listening right now, and i must say, for the first time i'm listening to the BTBAM ... and surprised...it's so technique and complex and has those yumi and catchy riffs...shit...tha's this \m/-.-\m/

Rating: 8 The songwriting isn't quite as fluid to me but considering this is just an EP in prep for a hopefully bangin' full length I'm ok with this. It's still awesome.

Rating: 9 As always, a great release from this band. Sounds like a prelude to The Parallax II.
