Not what I had hoped for, 9 May 2010
First of all I have to say that I really liked the previous record, it is one of my absolute favourites, especially the "slower" disk so I had big hopes for this one. Sadly this was not what I had hoped for, the new singer sings pretty ok... but he sings. All the time. This makes the record a lot less dynamic, and for me, a lot more dull. It is almost not metal anymore, but some kind of rock. There are nice harmonies, interesting passages etc and you can hear that it is The Ocean, but in the end I find myself changing cds every time I try to listen to this. It makes me sad, I really had hoped for more.
