I've never been so in love with an album as I've been and still am with this one. Loving love that has lasted ever since it's realese. This album is all what melodic metal should sound like if you ask me. It's just insane, for each time I listen to it I only get more and more impressed. Oyeah, this album is one of my ALL TIME (all genres) favorite albums. And as far as metalcore is concerned this smokes everything in it's path, although I gotta say some of the releases of Killswitch Engage are close.
