The songwriting on this album deserves a lot of praise, not many "genericore"/Rise bands these days experiment at all with unique/linear structures. "Graveyard Souls" is a fantastic tune (love the circular motion), and the rest of the album doesn't disappoint. A nice blend of electronics/strings and modern post-hardcore, with some great vocal interplay.
Tight instrumentation, strong vocal delivery particularly on the cleans and orchestral backdrops with an overall theatrical theme are many of the things that were well executed with this album. While occasionally falling plague to generic tendencies, it isn't enough to drag this album down from being as enjoyable as it is.
