Now I'm not really a big fan of this group, but I find it disconcerting that this has a meager 5 (now 6) comments and "Ronnie Radke solo song" has over 40

"Cold Earth"
Words can't do this song justice. The half-time drum pattern is a mix of trip-hop and dubstep, but it also contains hints of breakbeat and lounge – two once-influential genres rarely mentioned these days.

It sounds even better played forward and backward at the same time, it almost sounds like it was made to be played that way.

geodaddi was somber but not really dark

this is honestly a completely 180 from what i expected, i was expecting an extension of campfire but this is probably the closest BoC have ever been to making a truly dark record.

The beginning of Split Your Infinities is the best part of the album IMO.

I love Geogaddi. MHTRTC is good but it doesn't have the same trills and motifs as Geogaddi, or it's swelteringly intense
atmosphere, all of which is what I loved about that album. This seems to be the same. It's a bit too ambient for me, even
if it is darker than MHTRTC, but obviously I'm going to have to listen again cos it did sound like there was some cool
stuff.

That's the problem when all 4 of your albums have different feels.

Listen to their albums when sunbathing, it's a religious experience.
