4.0 excellentCory Yuhas | July 6th 12

this is definitely a grower for me. initially it came of as a 3-3.5, but after repeated listens, it made me realize how this is different than a lot of other bands out there.

2.5 averagewickhead | January 19th 14

Too much hype. I had very high expections. None of that is the bands fault though. I'm not sure I understand what they're trying to accomplish with this album, although I do enjoy it for the most part. Songs with openings like Ivy & Wine remind of old school KoRn, groovy, down tuned, extended range guitars adjusted for todays Hot Topic crowd. Any part that had a keyboard seemed so out of place, this is a trend that has carried over from TTDTDE. The 8 and 9 strings guitars seem to only one purpose and that is total destruction so it didn't make sense in context with so many clean singing moments.

Bump

3.0 goodLunaticSoul | January 30th 13

Good ideas, but not many stand-out songs: still a decent effort, looking forward to more.

Bump

3.0 goodRedHorizon | October 25th 12

A globally well rounded album. While the vocals are very well done and the rhythm section, albeit sounding a little too close to generic metalcore, keeps the album going smoothly, the guitar work deserves special recognition for its astonishing variety between Meshuggah-esque heaviness, Animals As Leaders-like soloing and Circa Survive-sounding melodies. rSome songs do tend to sound a little too close to material from bands like TDWP and Sky Eats Plane, but Glass Clouds still have a sound very much of their own. They do their best to differentiate themselves from the rest of the metalcore pack, which deserves some respect.

Bump

4.0 excellentBob McFlum and the hairy pancake brigade | July 10th 12

The past few years has been flooded with metalcore bands, and it sucked balls. We all know this fact but Glass Cloud's debut gives me hope that this genre might not always be crap.

Bump

3.5 greatDolving999 | July 2nd 12

This is really good actually. "If He Dies, He Dies" cannot get out of my head, that intro is terrific.

Bump

3.5 greatNerf | June 26th 12

Better than expected, but I'll need to spend some more time on it before I come up with a solid rating.
