This sounds exactly how I thought it would. Though it's good, it's not incredible. It's pretty generic, predictable and drags on and on and on....this is coming from a fan of a lot of their previous work.
finally listened in headphones. hmmm. its good. but its more of the same. take one emotional tone, lay it on really thick, and make it gradually louder over 8 minutes. at least explosions in the sky move between multiple tones and crescendos in a single song. mono need to break out of their own mold.
