Alot of believe this album is their weakest effort, but I believe it has their finest work ever. Some would say that they more poppy, but this cd has the heaviest stuff that the fall of troy has and probably will ever do. The best tracks imo are “The Dark Trail”, “Semi-Fiction”, “Sledgehammer”, “Seattlantis”, “Ex-Creations”, and the epic closer “A man a plan a canal Panama”. This cd has some of the best guitar work iv’e heard, the vocals are hit or miss, but i’ll give the guy a pass because he plays so well. If you like progressive music or heavy music this is one to try out, at the very least try the tracks iv’e listed.
