I haven’t been listening to these guys very long all, in fact I just dug em up recently. I’m giving it 4 stars because I think it’s above average metal with great melody. The other reviewers on this page are long time fans who think this album stinks in comparison with their old stuff. Since I am not a long-time fan I don’t really know, their old music may have been much better. But still-I rest my case-this is a sick album!
