"Fossil Genera is one of Btbams best songs wtf are you on? The story of that song alone is fucking amazing"

The story and lyrics on that song are indeed brilliant but to me it is extremely disjointed even for BTBAM. It has the problem of some of the songs on colors where the heavy parts is a collection of riffs that come one after the other much like on sun of nothing and ants of the sky (except way less fun and memorable for me) which all seem to blend together. Yes, the riffs together make sense in the song but for me personally it ends up not being as memorable as many of BTBAM's other songs. The only truly outstanding parts on the song are the first 2 mins and the closing part of the song. Rest of the song could have gone in a different direction and it still would be as good if not even better.

This sort of problem BTBAM have had has been pretty much erased here.

Kinda feels weird for me of all people to be critiquing a btbam song haha.

Fossil Genera has always felt like one of BtBAM's most well-structured longer tracks to me.

Listening to this for the first time in ages and everything feels so fresh. Lay Your Ghost to Rest still feels like the greatest thing ever. BTBAM's best song imo.

Even though it starts off with a bit of experimenting, I love how straightforward Fossil gets closer to the middle with the heavy part. Easily one of my most favourite passages this band has every wrote.

Overall, TGM is definitely my favourite album from BTBAM. But I still think that Desert track is a very weak spot.
