my AOTY so far but there's a handful of other releases that are close, and number of upcoming albums that could definitely de-throne it.

btw Frances is not only my favorite album of theirs, it's also in my top 10 of all time.

I disagree that "Whip Hand" is a weak track. I hated it upon first listen but it shaped up to be one of my favorites. Great review.

Empty Vessels blows so hard. Most generic chorus in recent memory.

I'll have to check this out. Hope I'll like this one at least. Most of their stuff is either mindblowingly awesome to me (De-Loused and Frances, and parts of The Bedlam) or absolutely unlistenable. I even had to take out a lot of the random noise parts manually out of songs so I could listen to them. Me and this band have a love-hate relationship going on and I hope this affair ends with some love that's not tough.

Definitely some new influences and stuff but it's good. The centerpiece and the title track are my top tracks, although Empty Vessels and Trinkets are excellent too.

This is easily the best since Frances the Mute for me...

I've only been into this band for over a year or so but I could never really warm up to Bedlam and it's follow up, however this feel like a full band effort and i'm really lovin' it. That synth in the Whip hand is just so badass and dirty!
