yeah, thats not too far off...when I first heard it and didn't really think it was on par, I had to ask myself if it was a lack of skill/creativity/enjoyability on their part, or me not having an ear for the sound they're trying to get across on this album.
They have some great ideas, but alot of stuff just kind of sounds like afterthought filler...quirky, yes...good yes...enjoyable? mmm depends on you and the mood you're in really...Alaska I think is their masterpiece...this is more truely a concept album...and in that sense it really is great since they do have the talent to back up their better ideas.

tip #1: don't listen to this album sober if you can help it.

tip #2: pretend this is the first time you've heard this band.

tip #3: Make sure you have a great lower end soundsystem or you'll be missing out on the best part of the cd.

this cd has my blessing. Alaska has my sooullll though

This thing is terrible.

The thing about BTBAM is they are either playing something awesome or playing something so bad it is ridiculous. This album is a perfect example of how good this band could be and also how bad their ideas truly are.

I guess Glass Casket is for me.

This isn't quite as good as Alaska. The songwriting was a lot more solid and memorable, and there are simply too much Dragonforce/Dream Theater moments here. The intro of 'Prequel To The Sequel' is cool though.This Message Edited On 09.06.07

This album is pretty much amazing. It's quirky, but it wouldn't be BTBAM at all without the cheese. None of the cons anyone has mentioned make Colors any less enjoyable.

However, the stuff going down on the teaser on their myspace is god awful.

I'm still curious as to who does the deeper Patton-esque parts in Sun/Prequel, and who does the whiny scramzing in prequel 2 da sequels.


Dunno about the Patton-esque parts, but the "whiny scramzing" is Adam from Fear Before the March of Flames.

About the album, though; I think it's incredible. I really like The Silent Circus and Alaska, but for some reason I've never been able to REALLY get into them and fully enjoy them. This album, on the other hand, is probably my favorite of the year so far.

This album is absolutely incredible, and IMHO craps on The Silent Circus and, yes, Alaska as well. It's by far their most complete work yet. There are so many epic, heart-stopping moments on this record it's not even funny. For some reason it's a lot easier to listen to front-to-back than any of their other records. Easily best of the year or damn close. 4.75 for me.

I'm too into progressive metal to not like this more than all of their other releases. I enjoy nearly every moment...

4/5 from me so far.

"I love this album. I can listen to it from start to finish and not even come close to getting bored. I love their other albums as well, and yes the really heavy breakdowns are pretty similar to the other albums. For me its still a really amazing album. Probably my favorite by them. "

I'll probably end up getting this to see if I like it more than Alaska. Alaska, other than Selkies, was boring as hell.
