Album Rating: 4.5
I'll agree with you on the different playing between the two albums, but I think that difference was more chosen than
being inspired, or a lack there of.
DIADL sounds like the band going "okay, it's new Fates Warning, where do we want to take our sound?", whereas
Arch/Matheos is more a one-off thing.
Totally respect you liking that album more though, it's a beast. m/
