I like this band but this album is almost impossible to like.

Actually I did kinda like Spencer's song, but it's an early contender for guiltiest pleasure of the year.

If it wasn't for Spencer this band would be a huge snoozefest. With him they're only kinda a snoozefest.

They are tight musicians though dude, they just need to learn how to craft cohesive tunes.

You know I wouldn't be surprised if they released this garbage just to quench the fanboys thirst for new material for a bit to sort of

"clear" the way for something epic (new album). Or, I could be trying to look through rose colored glasses, and the EP was just a

major miss on their part. The reality of it all is probably the later.

they're tight musicians agreed and obviously have talent. too bad it's used in the same generic
fashion on almost every song they create. I've enjoyed a few tracks by them on a purely superficial
level, but they always seem to lack lasting power.

I think it's a nice way to bridge the gap to the next album.



Disagree on spencer's voice, I personally think it's fantastic. Though there are a few melodies I don't think sound right (On Marks song for example)

Matt, Spencer and Mark's tracks are pretty great.



Disappointed by Misha's though. Not very interesting.

This is considerably less interesting than their two full lengths, both instrumentally and vocally, and that is saying quite a lot.

Wholeheartedly agree with this review. It could have been so much better, the concept was brought up by Stephen Carpenter, the man himself.



Pretty much hit-or-miss. Digging the guitar player's tracks. Expected more of Nolly, and Spencer... well, although the intention was right (veer off the typical Periphery sound) it went way too far.

To be honest, I still love Periphery. But I hate their evolution since 'Icarus Lives' EP.

Their first Album was the greatest piece of music I've ever heard, and P2 just dissapointed me so much, because it was all catchy and they fell in this shitty 'Metalcore-Mainstream-Djent'.

It's the same for Clear and I know it will not happen again, but,

I FREAKING WANT PERIPHERY LIKE IT WAS BACK IN 2010!



My hopes lay in Misha's solo album...

Curse.

"My hopes lay in Misha's solo album..."



I don't know how to feel about that. I know he wrote most of P1 solo, which I love, but the style he

uses most of the time now doesn't do anything for me. Like his track here sounds a lot like anything

on P2, just really dull and emotionless.



But yeah, P1 is their best. It was catchy yeah but it was also beautiful at times, the melodies they

used back then actually carried emotion, there was a really noticeable atmosphere, now most of their

material is just... Well we all know what all their stuff sounds like now, I don't need to explain

it. I thought Spencer's voice on P2 was far superior to his P1 performance but otherwise I think it

was a colossal step in the wrong direction.
