I had to rate this album at a 3. I felt it was an absolutely half assed album. But again this is why we all have our own opinions.

The drumming was incredibly weak. There could of been sooo much more done drumming wise that would have brightened up the album. Boring, simple, repetitive. In my eyes I just see another typical deathcore album with some progressive elements. The production was rather much, too much.

A great album, more jazzy n ambient than exoplanet.

This album is amazing. I love how musical and progressive it was. Not as good as Exoplanet, but it's really great in it's own right.

This is the first time I've heard these guys. I kinda like this. Pieces a lot of genres nicely together. Obviously for me I enjoy the progressive metal part of it.

That would be a good album for a mediocre band without potential, but for that band it's huge letdown... maybe the biggest letdown I've heard this year.

I compltetly withdraw my previous statement. I've fallen madly in love with this album.. I've got to stop being so quick to judge. Solid album, magnificant sound.

The biggest problem with this album is that we've heard this before.

I enjoyed a reasonable amount of the softer proggier parts, but I did find some of the deathcore parts a bit of a slog. Need to check Exoplanet still but I do feel like they've gone up a step with each release based on this, Language, and Clairvoyant.
