A strange mix of experimental and mainstream rock, with a hint of math. What it lacks with catchy hooks, it makes up for with groove and energy. This is not the same band as before though, the atmospheric keys have been toned down considerably and the overall record has a much heavier feel than their older stuff.
There are plenty of suprises though - like the slight technoy beat in Salem or the acoustic interlude in Bullets and Blue Eyes. This is a solid release and hopefully an indication of much bigger things to come.
