Honestly this is a great album. I've never been a huge btbam fan, and they're obviously a very divisive band, but I'd say this is their best work next to Colors.

While it may not be my AOTY, it's definitely one of the albums I've played the most this year. There's so much to hear and it's just fun to listen to.

This album is very cool. Easier to listen to than Colors, and contains less annoying and dragging-on moments. Also less metalcore influence, which is always a plus.

Tommy wouldn't be able to pull off all clean vocals I think tbh.

@Viral, probably not anytime soon. They recently had a livechat thing and I remember reading their response to why they have harsh vocals and they reply was something like "We are a metal band. The music is heavy, we provide heavy vocals. I need coffee." I'm paraphrasing.

i dont think they'll ever stop being heavy. this album already has enough clean vocals for my taste, i just hope they go back to writing alaska and tsc style riffs for the next album although this album has some of the best riffs theyve written in a while imo.

Digging: Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails

Aha, it would certainly be interesting-a BTBAM Damnation...

I wonder how the fuck they can get more proggy (while still being metalcore) than this

these guys are further developing in a more modern way what Mr. Bungle tried to do. Very Unfortunately Mr. Bungle broke up and we now have these guys
