unfortunately i think this is going to be the start of their decline

they've been the staple of consistency for so long, though, so it wouldn't surprise me if this was awesome either

I'm curious to hear the direction they're taking.

They will have to try hard to 'CONFRONT THE GUILT 'N TRYYY TO OVERCOME' their previous album, which was incredible.

Last album was great so here's hoping this is.
Although some of the heavy riffs sound awkward with Jonas' vocals at times.

"That album art is beautiful but the name is really lame."

It goes well with another gem such as "Night is the New Day". :D

Hope this new album doesn't sound like the previous 2.

Didn't think it could get cheesier than 'Night is the New Day.' I see I was wrong.

ItsOnlyWords: My bad, release is August 27th (EU) or 28th (US). Should have mentioned it in the article, but hey, following a link isn't hard.

It's really good. It's not nearly as instant, but their songs have finally kind of expanded out.

"Guess what I'm listening to!"

*jealous*

Is it on par with their last album? Because I really loved that one. "Departer" and "Idle Blood" are two of their best songs, and the album as a whole was very consistent. It's a shame that many on Sputnik don't like the direction they've taken.

It's hard to say because this is much less instant. It's more melodic and mellow. It's kind of like they took their previous sound and mixed it with a bit of Anathema and The Cure. It's really good, but I can see that it's a grower.

"It's kind of like they took their previous sound and mixed it with a bit of Anathema and The Cure. It's really good, but I can see that it's a grower."

Well, now I'm really anticipating this will be awesome.

"Gyro: funny you mentioned my fav songs of that album, and they fucking rule. But as whole, can't say I've enjoyed NITND."

Haha, that's an odd coincidence. Granted I think they're the clear highlights, but until now no one I've discussed this album with has shared my favourites.
