I didn't know a great deal about Cave-in when i picked up this album...now i know they are from Boston, MA (a great city) and that they have put together an amazing album. they tell me this is their fourth album and i have yet to hear the other three. the most striking thing about this album is the melodic vocals from lead singer Stephen Brodsky, they wouldn't seem out of place in a band like Radiohead...but they are in Cave-In and they work so well! everything fits into place nicely on this album, my only criticism is that it may be a tad over-produced, maybe it sounds a little too clean shaven, but all the same this is an excellent album...highlights include 'Joy Opposites' and ' Stained Silver' but there is no such thing as a bad track on this album... a must buy for fans of the softer side of GlassJAw and the more melodic hardcore scene.
