4.0 out of 5 stars Another strong effort from Shadow's Fall 14 Dec 2009
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
At first listen I didn't really respond to this album, the music didn't seem as fresh as their earlier work and while the whole thing seemed to have the exact right formula, it lacked that special spark that made it great.
The album however, is a grower and persistence is certainly rewarded as the songs do become enjoyable and then memorable after a while, it's got everything you want from Shadow's Fall; The Metalcore tinged Thrash Metal style, plenty of guitar solos, the mix of classic and modern, the mix of clean acoustic sections with traditional heavy sections and of course the catchy singles (`Light that Blinds,' and `What Drives The Weak,')
The vocals have that usual Shadow's Fall mixture of Brian Fair's trademark loud and soft with Matt Bachand's death growls and clean passages as well as a healthy amount of Exodus/Testament style gang backing vocals.
Also worth mentioning is the production, which is a lot clearer and crisper than the band's previous effort. It seems like everything is just easier to hear and more even.
At the time the album came out some magazines and even some fans claimed that this album was a step in the wrong direction, a bad effort or worse still, a giant sell out. This idea should be ignored, the balance of heavy and light has barely shifted from 2002's excellent The Art Of Balance album, the song writing is by no means poor and the musicianship is still top notch.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is strong 31 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
It is a good album by shadows fall

The vocals are harsh but the singed vocals are not harsh

the guitar playing is tight and well played
the drumming and bassing is also tight and well played
ome of the riffs are really good and
the lead work is good too

some nice acoustics parts too break up the whole heavy thing which i always like it makes the heavy parts more heavy sounding

It is a good effort I think mildly better than the art of balance the album that came before this
because they are settling in to a stable line up too which helps
and I think they finally got stable and feel confident and it can be heard that the playing is tighter and more precise in this cd
the production is more prcise too I think

the bad points are I think Bryan fairs vocals aren't as good as some other similar bands
but i love his hair so I don't care
and also i don't really find anything that memorable except the intro acoustic part at the beginning

But it is still a solid release
