This cd personally wasnt there best. I thouhg alot of songs sounded alot alike. just with diffrent words and all(like most songs should be, hee hee) and well alot of the lyrics were very poetic(as you said) then yea alot was very hard to fallow(the way they over laped and all that stuff)
Well ill just give a quick review of the songs:
Strength Through Wounding-Well since iv heard "Sing The Sorrow" id say this one sounds sorta of like the first song on that. Its ok but sorta boring.
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda-This song was ok. Id personaly say not the best way to start the album. It was pretty catchy. I liked the 2 vocals with it.
Exsanguination-I loved the bass line to start it!!! Then it sorta of only started there. It was really good with the lyrics. The bass is great, what can i say.
Malleus Maleficarum-Didnt have the best start. So it was a bit boring for the first liek 45 seconds or so. Then it picked up once it got to the verse then it went real good. Had some pretty good drumming.
Narrative of Soul Against Soul-Just a typical song. Not alot too special. Had an ok chours. Thats about it.
Clove Smoke Catharsis-Starts off real good. Its kind of one of the 'slow' songs but picks up a tad. But a good one! Real good lyrics to it. One of my favorite songs.
The Prayer Position-Had a real nice guitar riff to it. Got a bit boring. But it was all and all an ok song.
No Poetic Device-An average song. But really good bass line to it. Thats about all.
The Last Kiss-Has a pretty good bass riff. But the drums sound the same as alot of the songs. But has like a really good chours.
Weathered Tome-Has a really cool bass start. Then its a really good punk song.
At a Glance-A catchy guitar start. Then just goes like alot of there songs(like the drums and vocals the same). But it had really good lyrics.
God Called In Sick Today-My favorite song on the album. It was really good. The bass is good and the guitar is very like catchy and sounds good BUT the drums sound the same pretty much. The lyrics are so awsome.
(Hidden Song at the End, but a long wait to get to it)
Midnight Sun-A pretty good song. One of the best. Has really cool lyrics. But sorta sounds like some of the other songs. Then again it has its original parts(like the verses)
All in all id give it a 4/5
