As a long term FFAF fan, I am suitably pleased that after a slight dip in standard on TDTT, the boyos ave rediscovered some of the quirks which made them award winners earlier in their career. A touch of screamed vocals, but not too much as that genre is so overdone and passe now, and more importantly a return to time signature changes which they used to such good effect on early EPs and CDADIC. In feel this album is closer to Hours I guess, but pays homage to earlier styles, and tracks like Waterfront Danceclub, Cant see the Forest and Beneath The Burning Bush, are slotting in beautifully with the old stuff on their live set.
There isnt a bad track on the album, and I guess still some slow burners for me yet, in months to come I suspect Maybe I Am, Constant Illuminations et al to bury in my brain and take up squatters rights.
The DVD gives 3 vids, making of WD, an amateurish interview with a guy from Dirty Sanchez and some commentary on each track (which is a bit plodding)but all in all the DVD is worth paying the extra few quid for if you are a collector of FFAF stuff.
Great album from a great band, but if you want to see hear them at their best go see them live, they'll melt ya face !
