Although Deep Blue didn't hold my interest at all i'm still big fans of these dudes and i'm excited for the new material and this.

Will listen and post my opinion when I get home from work. The vocalist for this band is a machine

deep blue is pretty underrated, sleepwalkers and Home Is For The Heartless are both amazing tunes, and to whoever said they're going back to their old sound, this sounds nothing like either Horizons or KWAS

I was a massive parkway fan upon release of kwas and I've seen these guys live over 10 times. Im not one to judge when a band doesn't change their sound (given that new releases are a slight step forward or just as good as their previous work), however, this is just not interesting. Only listened once, but it's just boring. A little disappointed. Back to amity for now.

Been following them since just before Horizons. Song was okay, but I doubt Atlas will top Deep Blue, which I love.

Also, Deep Blue production > this production.

I liked it. Doesn't sound hugely different from Deep Blue, which is their only album I particularly liked. Atlas will probably be absurdly popular in Australia again.

Deep Blue is easily my favourite album by them too. It sounds a lot less generic than their first few releases, and the production on Deep Blue was a lot closer to Parkway's live sound than the overproduced studio tones they had on the first two albums.

Yeah, the production on Deep Blue was absolutely spot on, got the perfect balance between all the instruments. But yeah, won't lie, parkway are amazingly generic and are more of a fun, vaguely guilty, listen.

They are rather generic but they do it fairly well. A lot better than other bands trying to do a similar thing. The best thing about Parkway in my opinion is that, despite their now considerable popularity, they still just seem like theyre making music for a few of their mates. Vocals are amazing as is the case with pretty much all Winstons work and takes it from a 3 to a 3.5

They've always been a top-tier metalcore band for me, personally. I never got into Deep Blue, though. Hopefully this album will grab my attention but it's very doubtful as metalcore is starting to lose it's pizaz in general.

Has definitely grown on me. I love the drumming, and though it's simplistic, it's still got the energy that I love from them.

Also, that last breakdown... they have breakdowns all the time, and it still hooks me.

But still sounds the same and it doesn't have the hold like other Drive songs like A Cold Day in Hell or It's Hard to Speak without a Tongue
