  • Mad. I can't tell time signatures for s*** lol so I haven't noticed that, but yeah there is SOME remnants of their prog, sadly not enough imo. I like Bruce's new styles of guitar playing, particularly on Sense of Fear. His vocals are also possibly at the best they've ever been. And yeah, they are always instantly recognisable even if they're sounding less unique than they used to

  • Mad. Yeah you're probably right there. The first couple of songs are great well-crafted (apart from the lyrics) and TPT's alt-rock is at its finest. The rest is definitely lacking without the prog. Is there actually really any prog here at all?

  • Mad. Yeah I'm not sure it works that well as a cohesive whole. Longer songs definitely suit them. Most of their best songs are 5 minutes, it's a shame Bruce isn't interested in being progressive anymore. I'm not sure it it's laziness or a genuine desire to go simpler alt rock

  • Mad. Sits about a 3.3 for me right now. First few tracks are probably the best yeah, shame the lyrics are consistently abysmal. You're right, there's too many tracks, makes the album feel too long. If they'd had fewer but longer tracks it woulda been much better. The album's structure also isn't that good

  • Mad. Yeah you're right, some of the later shorter tracks are pretty pointless, but Simple As That, Alone to Die, Magnolia and The One You Left To Die are great
