I've glanced over some review that other people have placed here and theyre fair comments, however Im writing this for people who know who lamb of god are (people with taste).
In my opinion this album lacks the quality of the previous one, the riffs sound slightly recycled, the lyrics arent as good, and i think theyve tried to base it on the war too much.
On the other hand they have tried to add new elements to the music, use of samples, spoken-word phrases and instrumental tracks, and lamb of god are one of those bands where, regardless of whether youre listening to their best work or not, youre still going to enjoy it.
The only thing really left to say is, if you want a lamb of god album, get 'as the palaces burn'-it's like mary poppins, ''practically perfect in every way'' :)
