Album Rating: 4.5
nothing wrong with mainstream as long as its good, but thats a very tough thing to pull off imo. in waves was a great album that showed some growing pains at times but it showed promise for the future (not that i wasn't disappointed that they didn't stick with this style, but still). i still can't really wrap my head around what they were thinking with vengeance falls
Album Rating: 5.0
This is their best album by a long shot. The songwriting, The musicianship, all of it was top notch. Didn't care for In Waves too much, Shogun was THE album when i was in high school. Just gone back to it as a matter of fact and how i've missed it lol. Could be based on a nostalgic opinion but still. Vengeance Falls never really clicked... I'll give it another chance.
