A great album from Atreyu
on 29 March 2006
To put it simply, this album overwhelmed me
The lyrics, as always from Atreyu are clever, beautiful and perfectly balanced against the power of both the screaming as well as the amazing backing of the rest of the band.
Some people commented that this album was a watered down version of The first album, or even more "poppy" than the second. That is a complete lie. It's true this isn't like the first or second album, but Atreyu continue to push themselves, to improve and make something new. If you want a simmilar sound to the first or second albums go buy one of the hundreds of albums trying to imitate what Atreyu did two albums ago. If you want something special buy this.
There is one thing though that,didn't so much dissapoint me, but annoyed me slightly and that is the length of the c.d and the number of tracks. having only 9 tracks is fine (opeth did it with 8, and it was an incredible album) but opeth had tracks ranging for 4 to 10 minutes. No song is anywhere near that time scale. That said, it's better to have 9 consistantly quality tracks than a few extra filler tracks.
Anyway, I LOVED this album, and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
SO GO BUY IT!
