naah, this album is rock solid. you just have to take it for what it is, and not what it could be/should be/what previous albums were.



false awakening suite is boss.

Album Rating: 3.0 | Sound Off

False Awakening Suite is okay, it has some decent riffs, but I don't like the idea of a 3-part 3-minute song with too many riffs; it's just too disjointed.



For what it is the album is pretty solid, I just don't really like what it is. With some songs they really reach what they wanted to achieve with this though; the whole second side of the album is a solid 4. But ugh that first side is like the worst thing they've ever done imo

i'll take it for what it is - safe and mostly uninteresting

If MP had some lame idea of what "metal" is then so does JP. This is a JP album and it really lacks balls tbh. Black Clouds was so good and this is so meh.
I like hearing the bass though, that's pretty cool.

The songwriting is just poor and lazy and I refuse to compromise

Digging: Orphaned Land - Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons...)

All albums since TOT have been them ripping themselves off as well as a few bands here and there

If this had a standout song and eased up on the cheese it might be worth a rating bump.

The Enemy Inside the the standout song IMO, but it's still nothing amazing that makes the entire album better

Yeah, I'd say that and The Enemy Inside are the only songs worth giving a crap about here.

Enemy inside's chorus is the only good thing about it. The intro wank is a prime example of why I'm so pissed with DT nowadays

I think they actually use it tastefully there and make it sound OK. Sure, it wanks a little too hard, but there's nothing wrong with it
