Use the one I just posted. For whatever reason AP links do this frequently in news articles, not sure why.

But then the tour dates and such won't be linked, which wouldn't be necessary but I mentioned them in the article.

this is more original than whisper. but still wasn't that entertained by it. wish they would take the creativity of the acts combined with the polish of the color spectrum.

I found whisper to be amazing, but this to be boring, it's just missing something, there's not enough to it.

Sounds like The Color Spectrum TDH meets Major/Minor Thrice. It's good but I liked Whisper better. This album should rule.

a little boring at first listen. but that's also what i thought of st. peter from collisions and near misses, initially.

Not a fan of their new direction, it's like they've threw everything that made them unique in Act II/III away, and made an attempt to break into the Indie/Alt scene. Absolutely love this band, shame they've scrapped their more imaginative songwriting for this.

They haven't thrown anything away, they're just doing something different for the moment.

"lol people complaining about a band progressing"

The problem is that this progression sounds like regression

Casey spends most of his time trying to make a work cohesive across multiple albums. This is just him writing some stuff he wants to write, so don't necessarily expect it to be quite as spectacular as the Acts of The Color Spectrum.

Good thing being in the majority doesn't automatically make your opinion the right one.

It's more pop but those choruses he crafts are just so colourful. This sounds amazing and I'm itching to get my copy of the album through. It's time these guys had a go at cracking Europe. New direction is a perfect addition to the theatric explosive style of the acts.
