Good album, although some of the songs here have a very 'anti-climactic' feel. 'The cure', 'I am' and 'Insider' are all somewhat interesting to listen to but they left me wanting more of a finish, and the build-up on those songs amounts to a disappointing end. The vocals are also a little inappropriate sometimes given the way 'Burning man' and 'The veil' are both charged instrumentally, but nonetheless it remains a relatively unique voice. Not bad, but I don't think I'll be returning to this album in the future.

I find its bigger than "this is a warning" but something is missing...

I 5'd this at first, but I'm finding that it doesn't quite have the lasting appeal of "This Is the Warning." I love it, but it's lacking a certain something that I can't quite put my finger on.

So these guys covered 'Killing In The Name Of' for like a version and wow, some songs should not be done acoustically. This just does not work. Very disappointing after Karnivool's fantastic rendition of 'Hey Now' a few weeks ago.

Are you kidding me? I love that KITNO cover. Been listening to it all day.

It just takes all the power out of the song and just doesn't fit. It was a bad choice for an acoustic cover.

It was a daring choice I think. And while they've taken the aggression out of the song, it's still a good song. The sound may not necessarily fit the lyrics, but it's a good sound regardless.

I'll give them points for making the song there own but i don't know man as a cover it just really doesn't feel right. And it seems that most people (even the die hard DLC fans on their facebook) agree with me.

And at least it was kind of interesting which makes it better than half the songs on The Catalyst Fire.

Album is nearly flawless, except the last few songs. They die out a bit near the end of this.

I dunno about this album. I tried listening to it, but it was too pop-y(?) for me? I probably need to spin it again.

I probably do too actually. I was pretty disappointed in it though it wasn't terrible. It basically sounded exactly like TITW but with all the hooks and awesome vocal melodies taken out. And the attempts at making the big, TITW type massive choruses and moments just fell flat for me.
