Bought the Cd a few days ago, kinda annoyed it came without lyrics, especially due to the fact it's a concept album.

Damn that's stupid.



I guess you'd have to say... To find the lyrics you have to look deep inside yourself and ask yourself, "what will mom do for supper?". You may then reach a new level of understanding and materialize in a dimension far away where John Browne is actually the great guitarrist everyone says he is.

I was looking forward to hearing it all the way through with lyrics as I usually do with albums, but then this album has a story to it. I was expecting like a synopsis of everything and what is happening in each song but nope....nothing.

i'm surprised you don't think browne is a good guitarist moriera. if you watch his live playthroughs his picking technique is simply amazing.

I don't doubt it Beef, but the choruses are way too samey in this, and on Gnosis i had the same issue. It's Djent by the numbers man, that's how i feel about Monuments in general. By the first time i finished listening to this i was counting on it to grow, but it just doesn't.

Not really . Cd cover looks pretty cool but everything else is just the beige colour of the artwork. Missed opportunity for this, could've just zoomed into the front cover and shown where the story is for each part.

Not putting your lyrics on the booklet is a stupid move, or better yet a stupid lack of a move. Even

more so when there's people giving you money for your work even before it's released, what would they

guess? That those fans are not extremely appreciative of your work to the point of caring about those

details? That's no way to treat your hardcore fans. Just my two cents

This is really good, I enjoyed Gnosis quite a bit but I would say this is an improvement. Atlas is especially awesome.

Like literally all I was looking for was something like this as a lyrics booklet. (made in like 10 seconds)

Then it just goes round the album art depending on the song. Ah well, album is still excellent.
