Does it count as streaming that deserves an article when it's literally the release date?

My one nitpick is that the cymbals are not mixed very well

Haven't listened to the whole thing yet, and what I listened to was solid and fun, but the lack of variety was already starting to bore me. I was really hoping for something as great as Mandala.

There really don't seem to be many stand out tracks and it all sort of flies by. It's good but it's not what I've come to expect from these guys. I love their guitar tone though, always delicious

It's pretty solid. Takes a couple spins to settle in. Not as in your face as their last two albums.

I've loved every song so far even the intro is cool

and yeah i like the subtlety, the drumming in particular has mellowed a bit

@Eldar

go with either The Resignation or and the Battle Begun, they're good starters.

then, if you really enjoyed songs like the more ska-sounding stuff (like "Apparition" or "Taking Chase As The Serpent Slithers")
go with Progress or Halfway bewteen there and here. that's their earlier more ska-based sound. for an idea of what that era
was like, try: "Babylon".

but if you enjoyed the heavier or proggier sounding stuff (like "1980", "Crushing Destroyer" or "Decrescendo") go with
Mandala. that was their last one before this album and kind of headed to a heavier, prog-influenced sound (if you liked The
Mars Volta but wished for less fluff, this is for you) try "Bled to be free" to get an idea.

Thanks a lot!

I should probably go with their later stuff, not a big fun of ska, but their proggy side is awesome

Sounds like Mandala is your best bet. I would suggest working your way backwards from there and listening to And The Battle Begun, The Resignation, etc. so that you can acquire a taste for the ska-influenced stuff. They're a fantastic band, I hope you enjoy them!

Anyone just getting into this band, I would recommend starting with Resignation or Battle and then moving to Mandala. The rest of their records might as well not exist, though Progress is arguable.
